    To be more specific: Most often I use file local variables in the
    context of auctex. Then, instead of the above prompt I get

    Updating modify environment menu...

    which I will confirm or reject by typing `y' or `n'.
    That's odd.

Those look like echo area messages.  It is strange that those echo
area messages can appear in the middle of y-or-n-p.  It could be that
this constitutes an Emacs bug, that auc-tex should be unable to
achieve this result no matter what it tries to do.

However, there is no way to come to conclusions about questions like
this until we know precisely how the problem happens.  Can you run
under GDB with a breakpoint at message_dolog to determine what outputs
these messages?  A C backtrace and a Lisp backtrace from that point,
made with backtrace and xbacktrace, might tell us enough to figure
things out.

See etc/DEBUG for more debugging hints.
