Oops, pardon me, rest of the line in my posting got swallowed up;
"#<process dummy>"
is what I get, you are correct.

Which probably just confirms that Tex Live is no unknown entity to wsl, only wsl-emacs/ aucteX still seem reluctant to communicate.
I just got another idea. Before switching wsl, I had emacs/ aucteX succesfully running 'out-of-the box' under cygwin. Were this not comparable conditions, .i.e. a subsystem in which emacs/ aucteX had to fetch the pdflatex.exe in Tex Live in Windows. So, maybe it could be helpful to reinstall that again and compare entries in corresponding .init- or .emacs files?
