[Bug-AUCTeX] 11.85; problems with nil in load-path

Remember to cover the basics, that is, what you expected to happen and
what in fact did happen.

Be sure to consult the FAQ section in the manual before submitting
a bug report.  In addition check if the bug is reproducable with an
up-to-date version of AUCTeX.  So please upgrade to the version
available from http://www.gnu.org/software/auctex/ if your
installation is older than the one available from the web site.

If the bug is triggered by a specific (La)TeX file, you should try
to produce a minimal sample file showing the problem and include it
in your report.

Your bug report will be posted to the AUCTeX bug reporting list.

I am using a ~/.emacs file consisting of
  (add-to-list 'load-path nil)

When I visit any TeX file, the modeline shows "Fundamental" mode.
(This also happens when I am creating a new TeX file.)  However, the
expected AUCTeX menus (LaTeX, command) appear in the menu bar, and the
key bindings are what one would expect from AUCTeX.

If I issue the command
  M-x tex-mode
the minibuffer reports
  Wrong type argument: stringp, nil

Note that if I have 
  (setq debug-on-error t)
in my ~/.emacs file, I get the following Backtrace when I first visit a TeX 

------%<--%<--%<---cut here---%<--%<--%<----------------------------

Please look into this.  Thank you very much!!
