I do use a Mac (10.2.1). I have it from some of the best people on this 
list that this problem exists on their systems and to use the 
"emulated" workaround, and accept that it is so. However, I do not 
share the problem, finding 1.1.1 stable with Look and Feel set to Mac 
OS Appearance Manager (perhaps it relates to different things we are 
doing with the app; when it comes to multimedia, I'm somewhere else).
So, firstly, the change may work for you, and secondly, if it does not 
then the problem almost certainly does not lie in RR on the Mac but in 
something else in your system.
