M-f / M-b captures periods used in extension(suffix).

Consider 

         /tmp/foo.el<point>

If you type M-b, you will see

         /tmp/foo.<point>el

What I want with M-C-b is

         /tmp/<point>foo.el

I think read-file-name should know path separator defined by underlying
operating system.
