Very nice  Cheesy
As a pacman addict, I have a few comments:
* the teleporters are a really cool addition!  Kiss
* in the real pacman, the corners of the maze are round which you can use to take corners quicker. I think this is an often overlooked aspect of pacman that really adds to the playability.
* in the real pacman, ghosts never go back the way the came when they reach a corner. Makes the ghosts' behaviour a bit better I think. The ghosts only reverse direction at some 'random' times (and all ghosts will then reverse direction at once).
* movement is not 100% smooth. Looks like the typical 'java applet choppyness'. You might consider full screen exclusive mode in a web start application instead of an applet and although of course I don't know for sure this will solve it, it will probably help :-)
* You know pacman plus? I thought it was kind of cool when sometimes the maze would disappear when you eat a bonus. Maybe an idea to add that?

But all in all, a very fun and very well done pacman clone!

Works great on OS X, the score display seemed to be shifted to the right too much though, so the last digit (always a 0) was outside the score box.
