By Golly, I Think He's Got It!

What jb says makes sense. Most window units exhaust a small amount of air to the outside which would creat a negative pressure in the room. This would tend to draw smells out of the walls, registers, etc. Also the cooling of the air itself "contracts" the air which would also create a negitive pressure. (Granted a small effect) If the smell is comming from the unit, which is hard to believe that a new unit would give the same smell, you could test it by just placing it on the floor on a couple of old towels. With the window closed, run the unit for a few minutes to see if the smell is still there.
Good luck!
