It was not reported upstream and it would have saved me a bit of work
just recently.

The analysis is correct and the current fix in preview-latex
consequently has the side effect described in connection with the
`delayed' option.  Thanks for bringing this to our attention.  I'll
fix this for the next release.  A pity that the preview-latex package
maintainer has not considered passing this excellent report upstream.

Anyway, I've seen that AUCTeX 11.83 has already been committed into
unstable.  Awesome!
