Ahhhh.... so refreshing to have this working now!  Thanks so much for the tip Mose.  It took me a while to implement it since I am not too fluent with the file system in AuCTeX and needed to figure out where to find the file ("sudo find / -iname "beamer.el").   Fixing this was easier than I expected, but I could not anticipate when I got your e-mail in what was a pretty busy week.

If you (or anyone else in the list) happens to have time, I would appreciate knowing how can one know in a more general fashion what controls whether AUCTeX prompts for optional arguments or not.

You have to manually patch the file style/beamer.el in your AUCTeX
installation.  Replace the line

    '("alert" 1)


    '("alert" TeX-arg-beamer-overlay-spec 1)

Remember to byte-recompile the file with M-x byte-recompile-file RET RET.
