It returns for the patched 11.87 version indeed 

In the git version it returns

Which is consistent with the behavior I observed when I run latex.

Good news.

I did: I used customize to set 
 `TeX-source-correlate-method' to `auto'

Which is anyhow the default value.

Again with this setting the patched version behaved a expected but the 
the git version behaved odd.

Once I deleted the line in my custom-init.el file (where customize
options are saved) and restart xemacs then everything is fine. (Of
course `TeX-source-correlate-method' is still set to `auto' as before!!!)

So I think somewhere there is a bug and  the behavior of customize is
bizarre to say the least, this behavior makes the whole customize
approach absurd. 

I still don't understand why strictly speaking autex-git is not
backwards compatible, since I did not change anything in my setting.
