[AUCTeX] Local Variable ignored

In order to specify a master file, I'm using local variables. That is:

I have (setq-default TeX-master nil) in my xemacs init file, and


%%% Local Variables:

%%% mode: latex

%%% TeX-master: "hdr"

%%% End:


at the end of the child files. When I open the file and check the

value of TeX-master variable (M-? v), the value is nil.

I tried to create a new document. I was promted to set the TeX-master

value. Entered "hdr". The local values were inserted just as I did

by hand in the old file (example above).

Checked the value of TeX-master variable, the value was hdr.

Closed the file and opened it again, and the variable value was reset

to nil. I have the same behaviour when I execute (setq TeX-master

"hdr") from the minibuffer. The variable is set to the right value

until I close the file.

It looks like my local variable is invisible for Auctex when it parses

the file.

Any clue? I miss this multifile feature that I used to work with in

earlier versions of xemacs/auctex.
