Yes, that's likely the culprit.  I've set

  % Control file:line:error style messages.
  file_line_error_style = t

in /etc/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf, and then the AUCTeX error parsing works
as expected.

If you have a different problem, could you please post the complete log
being parsed?

No, thanks. This fixes my problem. And it seems that I'm loosing my memory because given the
time I have spent working on web2c, I should have noticed that I somehow overwrote this option.
(I had it turned on previously)

It should definitely be the default for a web2c TeX engine.

Best regards,
