Are you using AUCTeX here or GNU Emacs' own La/TeX-mode?

The mode identifier is a bit strange, having this "ht" in it... Maybe  
it's caused from the message "Wrong
type argument, stringp nil." This is likely to indicate that your  
Emacs uses presumingly old Lisp files. It might help when you'd give  
us the configuration information from the *Mail* buffer after starting  
to report an Emacs bug.

How did you install Emacs?

This is the old Savannah site from whose 23.x sources you can't build  
a "Carbon Emacs." What you have is either the X client or the Aqua/ 
Cocoa variant from the configure option --with-ns.

After this NS (from NeXT's NeXTStep and later OpenStep/GNUstep, which  
mutated to Mac OS X's Cocoa) variant was compiled, did you invoke  
"sudo make install?" Are you using this installation's Emacs.app?
