[OS X Emacs] AUCTeX mode annoyance

When I'm editing a LaTeX file in Aquamacs, I encounter a behavior that
seems
to be different from regular Emacs. If I kill a line of text that's
indented, it sometimes
deletes a space from the indentation of the next line. Here's a minimal
example.
Suppose the file consists of the following lines:

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}
\begin{tabular}{ll}
a & b\\
c & d
\end{tabular}
\end{document}

If I kill the line
a & b\\
then the line
c & d
loses one of its spaces, and becomes
c & d
This doesn't happen with regular Emacs.

When you edit LaTeX as much as I do, this gets rather annoying.

Is this an issue with Aquamacs? Is there a way to fix it?

Thanks
