Hi, Randolph. Thanks for the note.

The problem turns out to be that the default value for py-pylint-command-args should be a list, not a single string.

This will be fixed in Aquamacs 3.6.

In the meantime, you can customize py-pylint-command-args to be '("--errors-only").

As a side note: in Aquamacs 4, which will take a while, the Python mode support will change to the newer default python.el included in more recent versions of Emacs.
