You're welcome.

I'm not sure to which of Uwe's problems you are referring to.  He's had
tons of them but I think we resolved most if not all of them in the
meantime.  (Most were configuration issues on his side.)

Ah, yes, I think he had also a problem with TeX-style-path having a
non-standard value.  Maybe this has something to with the above although
I think he had that when he used GNU Emacs for testing and insisting not
to use one of the documented ways of installing AUCTeX.

You can never know.  I think at least reftex makes use of some of them
but that's under our control, too.  And some of them are exposed to user
configurations as well, e.g., entries of `TeX-expand-list' may assume
that `file' is bound to the file to be processed.  There are probably
others, too.
