I'm experiencing similar, and googling suggests this is an
incompatibility between the released versions of AucTeX's preview-latex
and newer versions of ghostscript (I have 9.01).

The two things to try are:

  a.) install a newer version of AucTeX manually, and load it in your
      emacs startup


  b.) install an older version of ghostscript

b.) is less work, a.) is a longer term solution.  Presumably, this will
be fixed in a newer Aquamacs version (and you should undo a.) at that
point, if that's the route you chose).
