Hi David,

thank you for pointing me to the problematic file:line:error style
messages. I changed that, and now it works.

thank you,

Remember to cover the basics.  Including a minimal LaTeX example
file exhibiting the problem might help.

Emacs  : GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i686-pc-cygwin, X toolkit)

Very old Emacs.

Package: 11.81

This is pdfeTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4) (INITEX)
  file:line:error style messages enabled.

AUCTeX (and preview-latex) can't deal with file:line:error style

Configure them off for now.

METAFONT runs may confuse the parsing.  Rerunning preview-latex might
help.  Not that this is relevant here.

Now this is interesting.  I never ever considered using file:line:
error style messages since we would lose the character-exact context
in the file.  However, it appears like the context is all there, and
we only get _additional_ information.

We probably should teach AUCTeX and preview-latex how to parse this:
after all, it the information that is the least robust to get.

Copying to the developer list and directing followups there.

I am afraid that with the current version, all you can do is edit your
texmf.cnf file (or whatever equivalent your TeX system is using) and
disable file:line: style error messages.
