This is the new behaviour in Emacs 22. (See the NEWS file.) You can use
`C-x C-f M-n RET' instead.

This hack was posted by Ted Stern:

(defun find-file-read-args (prompt mustmatch)
  (list (let ((find-file-default
               (and buffer-file-name
                    (abbreviate-file-name buffer-file-name))))
          (read-file-name prompt nil find-file-default mustmatch))
