I guess this is a small historical contingency.  We might indeed allow
relative filenames when `org-agenda-files' is a list.

I agree and would welcome a patch for this.

Changing this behavior is going to be a significant one as far as the current users are concerned. I started working towards a patch for this and now I am thinking how not to break existing functionality. Or should we force everyone to be relative to org-directory?

Here is the simple patch which straight away expands the file names with org-directory.

* org.el: 
  + org-expand-file-list ()
     Expand the list of agenda files in "org-agenda-files" with "org-directory" as base directory.
  + org-agenda-files ()
     Call org-expand-file-list() if "org-agenda-files" is a list.

Thanks and Regards
