Here's my conjecture: the problematic message is displayed by
`blink-matching-open'.  After cursory examination, it seems that the
problem is caused by the fact that `forward-sexp-function' in tex-mode
is trying to be smart and jumps to the beginning of the environment when
after "\end{...}".  Since there is no opening brace there,
`blink-matching-open' thinks there's a mismatch.

I'll try to come up with a patch.

Incidentally, AUC-TeX does not have this problem.

Best,
