I didn't mean that the behavior was not useful.  But it was never
documented, so it was just luck that it worked.  Note that something
like "../en.dict" is not a filename.  It can be expanded to a filename.
For many other variables Emacs assumes that they are bound to (expanded)
filenames, and relative names are not allowed.

Why don't you file a feature request (M-x report-emacs-bug)?  Just
explain what you wrote here.


Regards,

Michael.
