I managed to launch Emacs.app without system and user init files,  
with just some necessary lines to make it find AUCTeX and load  
auctex.el and preview-latex.el – and a preview was built!

Lindsay, can you try this too? Since I found during this another bug  
(it does not work to make it load and execute an ELisp file given on  
the command line) you would need to prepare some file in another  
Emacs with something like:

	(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "/Library/Application  
	(load "auctex.el" nil t t)
	(load "preview-latex.el" nil t t)

then launch, for example from this Emacs' *shell* buffer

	/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs -Q &

copy the three lines into the new Emacs.app's *scratch* buffer and  
either mark them all and apply M-x eval-region RET or position the  
cursor at the end of each line and press C-j at each line end, i.e.  
three times. Then load the LaTeX file and try to preview a region!
