Opening files like ".profile"

While playing around with file I/O, I wanted to open a file starting
with a dot, like ".profile". This is what happens:
> (open ".profile" :direction :input)
*** - no file name given: #"/home/unix/toy/.profile"
Presumably this is due to the CL pathname stuff which I don't really
understand. Is this a bug? Am I doing something wrong?
