Uh, no it isn't.  It is TeX which is started interactively.  The
semantics of AUCTeX are not changed.

How do you customize Emacs in that manner?  Are you sure you are not
describing an Aquamacs-only problem?

The semantics are not making anything active at all.  You can press
C-c C-l to show the compiler output, but that would not change focus

Again: what did you do for customizing this?

Are you or are you not using Aquamacs?  Could you use

M-x TeX-submit-bug-report RET

for generating a bug report including some basics of your configuration?

How did you come by this solution?  Is it part of Aquamacs?  We can
only use code in AUCTeX which has had its copyright assigned to the
FSF.  David Reitter only has an assignment in place just for Emacs,
not AUCTeX.  I don't think he would mind signing the same for AUCTeX,
but of course that would only cover code he explicitly contributed
himself, not code which he talked about with someone else.
