Actually me neither, just because AUCTeX can't handle \jobname, but I
don't know how often I'd use it otherwise.

Indeed yes, but if you change \jobname it woulnd't be possible to open
the viewer with `C-c C-v' either.[1]  This is another strange
effect/breakage Marcin referred to.



[1] In my personal wishlist there is the possibility to handle custom
jobname and outdir with file local variables.
