Thank you, it seems that `global-auto-revert-mode' is the key to this
issue. I did observe the echoed message that Colin described after I
enabled `global-auto-revert-mode'.

(To Colin: AUCTeX does not always open the log file when C-c ` is typed.
AUCTeX has its own error message catalogue in
`TeX-error-description-list' and checks if the current error is listed in
this catalogue. If found, AUCTeX displays the message in the catalogue
and does not open the log file. Hence it's necessary to cause error not
listed in the catalogue in order to make AUCTeX to open the log file

Colin, do these workarounds suit you?
