I think it makes sense to override local settings of `TeX-master' in
any case.  This way `TeX-next-error' will find every relevant file
even if an input file erroneously specifies something else as master

That means we have to fix `TeX-master-file'.  In case the value of the
`extension' argument is t, it should not blindly append ".tex" but try
to figure out if the file actually exists.  So if it does not find a
file ending with ".tex" it could loop through `TeX-file-extensions' in
order to find an existing file.  This, however, is error-prone.  Which
file should be returned e.g. if there is both a .dtx file and a .sty
file with the same basename?  With the current default value of
`TeX-file-extensions' .sty would be preferred.
