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"
1. Break> 

Presumably this is due to the CL pathname stuff which I don't really
understand.  Is this a bug?  Am I doing something wrong?
