A quick check with my old binaries shows that 2009-08-04 works but
2009-09-15 fails.

Some change in that period added tramp-completion-file-name-handler to
file-name-handler-alist.
Removing it from there makes (load "c:/emacs-history") succeed again.

Note however that tramp-completion-file-name-handler run the real handler.
So it looks more like it is the presence of the pattern

  ("\\`\\([a-zA-Z]:\\)?/[^/]*\\'" . tramp-completion-file-name-handler)

in file-name-handler-alist that causes the problem. Which probably
means that the problem is in `load' as Eli has suggested.
