[AUCTeX] Local variables and font-locking in AucTeX

Hello there,

I have been using AucteX under Emacs for several years and have generally
pretty happy about it.  Recently I moved to Emacs 22 (22.1.1), under
Windows 2000, where AucteX is
now a part of Emacs.  I have a couple concerns which I could'nt solve:

1.- Every time I open a LaTeX file with local variables as follows:

    %%% Local Variables:
    %%% mode: latex
    %%% TeX-master: "FMD"
    %%% End:

Emacs pops up a buffer like the following:
The local variables list in "quick.tex"
contains values that may not be safe (*).

Do you want to apply it?  You can type

y -- to apply the local variables list.
n -- to ignore the local variables list.
! -- to apply the local variables list and permanently mark
     these values (*) as safe (in the future, they will be
     set automatically.)

     mode: latex
   * TeX-master: t

If I type "!" to permanently mark these as safe Emacs freezes for ever and
have to kill it through the Window's Task Manager.  If I type "y" it works
BUT it does NOT "remember them as safe" as suggested by the doc. of
"enable-local-variables", which is set to "t"???

enable-local-variables is a variable defined in `files.el'.
Its value is t

Control use of local variables in files you visit.
The value can be t, nil, :safe, or something else.

A value of t means file local variables specifications are obeyed
if all the specified variable values are safe; if any values are
not safe, Emacs queries you, once, whether to set them all.
(When you say yes to certain values, they are remembered as safe.)

I find this very anoying since my machine is set to start Emacs
when I log on, Emacs then automatically tries to open everything that was
last time I used it, since I always have many latex files open I have to
hit the
"y" button many times and also each time I open other latex files!

Any suggestions to solve this?

2.- Font-locking doesn't work properly in latex files.  To get the proper
font-locking --- key words highlighted, different colors between {}, etc.
--- I
have to go in different places of the buffer and type <enter>??  Why is
and is there ways to correct this?  Yes I have font-lock on and
font-lock-maximum-decoration is set to "t" as well?

Thanks for any insights in these problems,
