Soft wrap means that a paragraph is a line in the file.  Communication  
between Aquamacs/synctex/pdfsync/Skim is always line-based.  Q.E.D.

Making it work in Aquamacs will involve figuring out whether the  
installed pdflatex actually supports a "synctex" parameter, because it  
may complain with an error otherwise, and of course we need to support  
the thousands of people with a 2007 Texlive installation, too.

Unsurprisingly, things always get a lot more complicated when you  
switch from "making it work on my machine" to "making it work for  
8,000 regular Aquamacs users".
