Hi, François.

1- How does emacs know the new path to auctex-11.89.5 as nothing has changed in my .emacs file ((add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/elpa/auctex-11.88.6") is still there but emacs uses now: ~/.emacs.d/elpa/auctex-11.89.5/)

Probably package-initialize is called in your init file after that add-to-list. If you do not a call to package-initialize in your init file, it gets added to it automatically by package.el.

If you install packages with elpa you do not need the add-to-list, package-initialize takes care of adjusting the load-path and using require in the latest installed version of each package.
