You can try this until you get a real fix:

(add-hook 'find-file-hooks 'auto-insert)
(setq auto-insert-directory (expand-file-name "~/.autoinsert/"))
(setq auto-insert-query nil)
(define-auto-insert "\\.c\\'"           "autoinsert.c")
(define-auto-insert "\\.cpp\\'"         "autoinsert.c")
(define-auto-insert "\\.java\\'"        "autoinsert.java")
(define-auto-insert "\\.txt\\'"         "autoinsert.txt")
