FWIW, the following example is running fine with a development Emacs on
GNU/Linux with TeX Live 2009:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
  author       = {Jones, Steve},
  title        = {My Life So Far},
  publisher    = {ACME, Inc.},
  year         = 1999
foo\cite{jones:99} bar

%%% Local Variables: 
%%% mode: latex
%%% TeX-master: t
%%% TeX-PDF-mode: t
%%% End: 
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The only problem I encountered was that the source for the preview is
not opened when point is moved over it.  This could be a regression in

With respect to your problem, does it work if you disable TeX PDF mode?
Or asked another way: What's your Ghostscript version?
