First let me say thank you for taking the time to reply and for your work on preview-latex. Much obliged.

I have found that using the \xymatrix command from the xy-pic
package crashes preview-latex. This is in contrast to merely not
previewing correctly, a known issue discuessed on the mailing list
in Jan 2006. The usual remedy, adding "delayed" as an optional
argument to \usepackage{xy}, does not solve this problem.

The optional argument would need to get added to the call of preview,
not the call of xy.

Yes, I was doing that wrong. I fixed this by adding "delayed" as the first string argument in the emacs customization group "Preview Required Option List". However, this still does not resolve the problem.

Emacs  : GNU Emacs (i386-apple-darwin8.6.1)

Package: 11.82

This looks like you are editing a file _region_.tex, or at least that
is the impression AUCTeX has.  Very unhealthy.  _region_ should never
be edited or compiled by the user manually.

I was editing sample3.tex and using the defaults of Aqumacs Emacs 0.9.9c (on osx 10.4.6 intel), which ships with auctex pre-installed. But I did the command preview-buffer instead of preview-document. preview-document runs on sample3.tex directly, instead of _region_. Also, I should note that I get the same failure trying to run preview on the this file from within xemacs (xemacs version 21.4.17, preview-latex 11.82; Debian stable), so I don't think the problem is a result of idiosyncracies of this particular emacs installation.

I will submit an updated bugtrace after this reply. Thanks again for your help.
