To reproduce the bug, open a buffer in ‘LaTeX-mode’, type a character
and invoke ‘TeX-insert-quote’. It just prints the message “Beginning

I think it’s reasonable to insert an opening quote whenever there
isn’t room for one behind the point. I’ve attached a patch that
implements this behaviour.
All the best,
