Wow. I constanty forget that both latex and emacs are older than me so every
problem I have has already been solved.

Hm. Interesting thing happens now. If I now do the C-c C-c latex thing from
main file - everything's fine. But, if I do it from included file, I get
errors. I then click the yellow triangle error icon and it opens *main_file
output* which has no errors in it. When I click that icon it usualy opens
*TeX Help* buffer and points to the line with error, but not this time...
So I just can't figure out where the error is.

OK, fair enough :-)
