Not sure which version supported that:

$ echo $BASH_VERSION;mkdir -p foo/bar; echo echo foo
foo/bar/file;PATH=$PWD/foo:$PATH;source bar/file;source foo/bar/file
2.05b.0(1)-release
bash2: bar/file: No such file or directory
foo

$ echo $BASH_VERSION;mkdir -p foo/bar; echo echo foo>
foo/bar/file;PATH=$PWD/foo:$PATH;source bar/file;source foo/bar/file
3.2.25(1)-release
-bash: bar/file: No such file or directory
foo

$ echo $BASH_VERSION;mkdir -p foo/bar; echo echo foo
foo/bar/file;PATH=$PWD/foo:$PATH;source bar/file;source foo/bar/file
4.0.33(1)-release
bash4: bar/file: No such file or directory
foo
