Dear bug-fixing team,

it happens from time to time, that I want to read AUCTeX's info documentation
as I am working on a TeX document. For that purpose, I do a `C-h i' to get from
the LaTeX buffer to the info buffer. However, XEmacs asks me to set the master
file and suggests, that is located in the info folder of my package
installation (that is: d:\Src\Build\XEmacs\xemacs-packages\info\).

To rule out any misconfiguration, I started up XEmacs with the `--vanilla'
switch and evaluated `(require 'tex-site)' in the scratch buffer. This did not
trigger the odd behavior. After having played with my settings, I found out,

  (require 'tex-site)
  (setq-default TeX-master nil)

does. Further testing revealed that the latest beta release of XEmacs
(21.5-b21) does not show that behavior.

I hope, I could provide a concise description of the problem,
