Arriving late in the discussion: I've had similar problems, and they  
seemed to be related with the "JPEG Options" that set the various  
parameters of the conversion (resolution, quality, color scheme) in  
Illustrator CS 2. I'm not sure (it was weeks ago), but IIRC setting  
the resolution to 300 dpi resulted in "reverse video" display for the  
Finder's Preview (in column view) and in Preview.app, while lowering  
the resolution to 72 or 150 dpi solved the problem.
