Gracias Mosè.

So the solution was in to replace

   (if extension


    (if (null (zerop (length extension)))

and change the string in `TeX-master-file` to an empty one.

And though it works and thank you, is the change of 
TeX-default-extension to "" ...that made me realize that the idea to
have an input file without and with an extension, entails to also have 
a TeX-nondefault-extension.

I have to be honest with you, after looking at that amount of code over
to have a "." (default) and the possibility to have a " " (nondefault)
is just perhaps more impractical than I thought, it was going to be.

And this is just over a string. A simple, almost inoffensive at first glance
string. hehe, that's funny. 

Take care Mosè.
