Well, the behavior you reported is exactly what is described in the
AUCTeX manual (info "(auctex)European") [1], so I wouldn't call it a

You can achieve the behavior you expected by setting the
`TeX-quote-language-alist' variable.  Add the following code to your
init file

    (add-to-list 'TeX-quote-language-alist
                 '("icelandic" "\"`'" "\"'" nil))

Now you can insert the right quotation marks by pressing " just once.

I'm going to close this ticket.
