I'm also on 10.9.5. I was probably on 10.9.4 when I tweaked that code.

This was the case here: the string returned by the AppleScript had
quotes (and it still does).

For instance, with the message you mention, the call to
org-as-get-selected-mail returns this (doing a debug):

Result: "\"message://address@hidden::split::Private beta invitation for Emacs 
Q&A site - Area 51 - Stack Exchange\""

It works well for grabbing a single message, but it breaks when grabbing
several. Here is one such broken result:

[[message://address@hidden: De passage ˆ San Jose"]]
[["message://address@hidden: De passage ˆ San Jose]]

The string returned by the AppleScript was this:

Result: "\"message://address@hidden::split::Re: De passage \210 San 
Jose\nmessage://address@hidden::split::Re: De passage \210 San Jose\""

Does it work on your machine with several messages selected?
