You're right. It's not documented anywhere, I'll have to add this info.

You're right again. The filename is interpreted as if it has been specified
by a #include "file" directive. Frankly, I didn't even look at the gcc
behavior wrt this. I'm not sure about the rationale of gcc's behavior
either, I chose Wave's behavior as to allow for (force-)include files in the
directory containing the main file.
Do you think we should change that behavior?
