I do it the same way as Uwe does it, and if I work on a multi-file
document, I call `C-c C-n' (Save buffer _including_ style
information). I think one has to do that once in each file of the
multi-file document.

,----[ C-h k C-c C-n ]
| C-c C-n runs the command TeX-normal-mode
|    which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `tex'.
| (TeX-normal-mode ARG)
| Remove all information about this buffer, and apply the style hooks again.
| Save buffer first including style information.
| With optional argument ARG, also reload the style hooks.

Yes, this is not optimal, but I don't start new multi-file projects
all the time and it is better than having ./auto directories spread
all over my home directory.
