Ok. The code that make the )read command is defined in
src/interp/i-syscmd.boot.pamphlet, lines 1406-..., in the readSpad2Cmd
boot function. At first glance, I cannot see what is going wrong.

Tim, I tried to follow your guidelines to trace this function execution
but the execution of readSpad2Cmd does not stop. Have I missed something?

(1) -> )trace readSpad2Cmd )break
   Function traced: readSpad2Cmd 
(1) -> )read .axiom
1<enter readSpad2Cmd : (|.axiom|)
protected-symbol-warn called with (NIL)
Break on entering readSpad2Cmd :
   The file .axiom is needed but does not exist.

Back to Bertfried issue: it appears that the call to FINDFILE returns
NIL when called with ".axiom" and the found file with ".axiom.input". 

(1) -> )trace _$FINDFILE
   Function traced: $FINDFILE 
(1) -> )read .axiom
1<enter $FINDFILE : #p".axiom"\("input" "INPUT" "boot" "BOOT" "lisp" "LISP")
1>exit  $FINDFILE : NIL
   The file .axiom is needed but does not exist.
(1) -> )read .axiom.input
1<enter $FINDFILE : #p".axiom.input"\("input" "INPUT" "boot" "BOOT" "lisp" 
1>exit  $FINDFILE : "/home/david/.axiom.input"

Is it a Common Lisp issue?
