Seems simple enough to fix, here is a patch (this also covers #17848
"add suffix search to -l even when directory part in argument"):

Subject: [PATCH v1] Improvements to --load argument handling

* lisp/startup.el (command-line-1): Search for files with load-suffixes
in default dir (Bug #17484).  Only pass normal files that were found,
since `load' doesn't handle directories (Bug #16406).
