I am experiencing a minor annoyance when opening tex files in carbon
emacs 21.1.1 (he one provided by Apple with Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard").
Namely, immediately after the file is opened it is marked as "not
saved", so that if I close it without making any changes I am asked if
I would like to save it, etc. I think this is an auctex thing, since
it does not happen when I open other text files, or if I don't load
auctex. Is there any setting I have unknowingly activated which is
responsible for this strange behavior? Any help would be appreciated!

I don't have a particular suspicion, so for me the cause might be hard
to identify.  I'd start with making sure that AUCTeX is compiled with
the Emacs version you are using. Then I'd check if the problem persists
if Emacs is started with
emacs -q -no-site-file -l auctex
making sure that font locking is disabled.


In fact, the problem disappears when I disable x-symbol (even if auctex is loaded), so it's most likely some kind of interaction between x-symbol and auctex. That's too bad, because x-symbol is no longer maintained. OTOH, I only use x-symbol for encoding-decoding accented letters and the like. In other words, when I edit a tex buffer I can type á and get x-symbol to write \'a to file when I save, and viceversa (\'a in a tex file is displayed as á in its buffer if x- symbol is activated). Do you know any (modern) package that has that capability and can be used with auctex? Alternatively, would it be possible (or rather convenient:-) to somehow merge x-symbol (or at least part of it) into auctex?

Thanks a lot for your help,
