If you open a slave file, AUCTeX will neither open the master file and
parse it, nor will it open other slave files because it does not now
about them.  It relies on such information to be stored in the `auto'
subdirectory.  By not enabling `TeX-auto-save', you are effectively
dumping the advantages of parsing in multi-file documents.
