CUA is implemented using a number of hacks and it doesn't surprise  
that this may not work.

Did you remap Command to "option" in the System Preferences?
Then why don't you do something like the following with the `osxkeys- 
command-key' variable:

(osx-key-mode 0)
(setq osxkeys-command-key 'alt)
(setq  osx-key-mode-map (make-osx-key-mode-map))
(setq osx-key-low-priority-key-map (make-osx-key-low-priority-map))
(osx-key-mode 1)

I haven't tested this, but I think it could work.
