Thanks for the report.  It is fixed in AUCTeX's CVS repository,
i.e. the next release will not exhibit this problem.

The problem is an incorrect syntax for the value of the
-sourceposition option passed to xdvi.  If you are in need of a fix
right now you can do `M-x customize-variable RET
TeX-source-specials-view-position-flags RET' and change the value to
`-sourceposition "%n %b"'.

A hint: If you have problems with AUCTeX, please report it on the
AUCTeX mailing list.  I found this message only by coincidence.
