Description Art Werschulz 2013-08-08 16:06:54 EDT
Description of problem:
When visiting a plain TeX file, get the error trace
Debugger entered--Lisp error: (void-variable latex-mode-abbrev-table)
  set-auto-mode-0(tex-mode nil)
  after-find-file(nil temacs-auctex-11.87-3.fc19.noarch)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Simply visit a plain TeX file.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start emacs (making sure that AUCTeX is being used for editing TeX files).
2. Visit a plain TeX file.
3. Get the error msg shown above.

Actual results:
See above.

Expected results:
The plain TeX file should be visited without incident.

Additional info:
As per http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/115870/void-variable-latex-mode-abbrev-table, this has been fixed in the development version.  Simply change  line 145 of plain-tex.el from
   (setq local-abbrev-table latex-mode-abbrev-table)
   (setq local-abbrev-table plain-tex-mode-abbrev-table)
You'll also need to issue M-x byte-compile-file on that file.

Still not fixed in emacs-auctex.noarch 0:11.87-7.fc20 . Every time fedora upgrades emacs-auctex I have to fix this by hand.
