I doubt very seriously that this is anything new.  We had the same
problem, even though we were using Gnome and not KDE under gentoo (KDE
was not even installed).  That does leave unexplained why the bug
bites us, but ...

Anyway, as you can see in my comments to the gentoo bug that you cited
in a previous message,
<URL:>, our fix was to
recompile emacs with different "USE flags" for the X11 toolkits, i.e.,
with the command

USE="Xaw3d -motif" emerge emacs

Until something else (not auctex) changes, I think that this is by far
the best solution, because it also stops another really annoying
behaviour in the default gentoo emacs install, which is that an
annoying motif "find file" dialogue box pops up everytime you try to
load a file and it requires mouse interaction to go away.

Motif basically sucks.
