Is is set to `auto'.

I am using texlive (2009 since I am still on Kubuntu 10.04)
but I insist with my personal  setting unchanged and your patch applied to 
auctex uses -source-specials for latex

But again: it is not preserved. With setting to auto now auctex uses
synctex instead of source specials.
