Which should tell us that we should at some point of time implement
command chains executed under the control of AUCTeX instead of an
inferior shell.  Or we start the TeX command with pdfclose, and make
the View command pdfopen.  People will still have to start their
viewer like before, but at least pdflatex will not bomb out because of
this abomination of an operating system's file handling.
