I'm using desktop-save-mode to automatically open the files that I had opened in the last session. This mode should also remember the files that I closed so that it no longer opens them in the next session. However, there is one file, say a.tex, that gets opened every time I start emacs regardless of having closed it in the last session. Interestingly, if I run emacs with the --no-desktop flag, the file a.tex doesn't get opened automatically. Why is desktop-mode opening the file? How can I debug this issue?

  • Have a look at your desktop file. Was it last saved when you expected it to have been saved? Is the problem file listed? – phils May 27 at 3:02
  • Alright, looking at the desktop file I found that I had another TeX file whose TeX-master file was a.tex. Closing that file solved the issue. Thanks! – Ricardo May 27 at 16:59

In the desktop file I found I had another TeX file in my saved session whose TeX-master file was a.tex. Closing that file solved the issue.

Perhaps auctex or some other TeX-mode was opening a.tex whenever the other file was opened at startup when restoring the saved session?
