Thank you for the quick reply.

Again, I'm very new to this, so it's not clear to me what the behavior
"should" be. I poked around a bit in auctex-config.el and I got the
impression that Aquamacs is trying to recognize if Skim is running, and
then calling Skim in preference to something else if so. In any case,
is there something I can add to my Preferences.el to make this the
default behavior (or, better yet, to make Aquamacs start Skim even if it
is not already running?).

I just sent in an official bug report; thanks for pointing out this step.
I got the new Macbook on Monday, so I'm running everything quite new:
Skim reports Version 1.1.8 (30), and Aquamacs reports GNU Emacs
18.104.22.168 (i386-apple-darwin9.4.0, Carbon Version 1.6.0)
of 2008-07-23 on plume.sr.unh.edu - Aquamacs Distribution 1.5CVS. In
fact, I was experiencing the bug where M-del didn't work in the
mini-buffer, and so I downloaded the nightly build from, I think,
Tuesday night, which successfully solved that problem, but not the other
one (thanks muchly for making available the nightly build which fixed
that other problem).
