"save-interprogram-paste-before-kill“ is broken on OS X in Emacs 24.3 and 
below, but it is normally disabled, so the error does not normally occur.  By 
installing better-defaults however you indirectly enabled it, hence causing the 
issue to manifest.

You can also update to Emacs 24.4 pretest, where the issue is fixed.
