This is a property of bash posix mode when you don't have `.' in $PATH: 28. The `.' and `source' builtins do not search the current directory for the filename argument if it is not found by searching `PATH'. > This behavior is new in version 4, old version 3.2 works fine. The bash-3.2 behavior was a bug. Its fix is listed in CHANGES: ggg. Fixed a bug that caused a shell running in Posix mode to search $PWD for a file specified as an argument to source/. when the file was not found in $PATH.
