Which version of AUCTeX are you using?  As I already wrote before, I
checked several changes into the CVS in order to get better behavior
for preview positioning.

The "problem" is that Omega, as opposed to LaTeX, uses ^^xx like
quoting for graphical characters in the error message contexts.
preview-latex contains pretty elaborate code in order to get around
this, but it may still get things wrong.

Your example code worked _perfectly_ here with the changes I did to
the CVS.

M-x preview-report-bug RET
so that it is possible to guess the involved versions.  And please
include an example document as an attachment, so that one has a chance
of having an example that has not been mangled by mail processing
systems.
