What does ~/Library/Preferences/Aquamacs Emacs/customizations.el have  
for the value of TeX-output-view-style?

Do you have another version of Emacs installed?  If so, you might  
well have a .emacs file and a .customizations.el file in your home  
dir, and I believe that Aquamacs will read those instead of the  
Preferences.el and customizations.el files in ~/Library/... .  If so,  
changes written out to the latter will not be read when you fire up
