[OS X Emacs] On Aquamacs 2.2, preview-latex images go to pdf, and not to screen

No, I'm sorry but deleting that file did not work.

Regarding the previous reply, can you please tell me exactly what I need to do to remove the "old" version of AucTeX and replace it?  I am having some trouble finding where to remove and re-install emacs packages in Aquamacs, and how to confirm which version is installed.

I have ghostscript 8.71 installed.  I did try installing 9.01 from MacPorts, but I hate MacPorts (slows down my computer, hard to maintain compatibility with other files, etc).  I could try installing gs 9.0.1 again, but it sounds like that is the cause of some of the problems.  But the problem should not be due to a difference between gs 8.71 and gs 9.0.1.  It just seems like preview-latex doesn't know to send the images to ghostscript (the screen), and not the pdf file.

Whenever I do a C-c C-p C-d (or similar), all of the preview images end up in a single pdf file, as opposed to being displayed in the document.  In this pdf file, each separate image is it's own, tightly cropped page.
