[OS X Emacs] Aquamacs 1.5 and SyncTeX

OK, you can see in auctex-config.el how we're getting at the line  
What does `file-line-number' return in your case? (i.e., do M-: (file- 
line-number) RET)  Is this correct?

Do you have longlines-mode on, or soft wrap (Option menu)?

Is it a really large file that you're editing?
I'm adding, below, the documentation string for `line-number-mode'.

support the Aquamacs Project!

line-number-mode is an interactive compiled Lisp function in  
It is bound to <menu-bar> <options> <showhide> <line-number-mode>.
(line-number-mode &optional arg)

Toggle Line Number mode.
With arg, turn Line Number mode on if arg is positive, otherwise
turn it off.  When Line Number mode is enabled, the line number
appears in the mode line.

Line numbers do not appear for very large buffers and buffers
with very long lines; see variables `line-number-display-limit'
and `line-number-display-limit-width'.
