I don't think there is much we can do here.  At least I don't see a way
to distinguish the closing parenthesis included in the overfull hbox
message from the parentheses marking file beginnings and ends.

What I'd like to try is to allow `TeX-error-file' to become empty in
`TeX-parse-error'.  That way we could at least get rid of the craziness
that is the opening of buffers on non-existent files.  Instead there
would be an error with the message "Error occured after last TeX file

Anyway, the canonical answer to problems with the error parser is to
enable file:line:error messages in LaTeX.  And with TeX Live you should
not lose anything from the error message (in contrast to MiKTeX).
