SHORT DESCRIPTION: Adding the --file-line-error to the latex command results in generation of less detailed report, at least with beamer documents. This affects use of AUCTeX as seen in http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/124259/32782 (Also, the option seems undocumented.)
LONG DESCRIPTION and how to reproduce the bug:
Create a document named fizz.tex with the following contents:
For comparison, also create a document named buzz.tex with the same contents.
Run the following in Command Prompt:
latex --file-line-error fizz.tex
What I expected was that the generated log file fizz.log to contain the same information as one in buzz.log plus some file line information. But lalala is never mentioned in fizz.log (while it is mentioned in buzz.log).
