[tex-k] Bug in TeX 3.141592

I think I have found a bug in TeX. According to ``TeX: The Program'', the
construction ``\input\input f'' is explictly prohibited (this is due to the
implementation of the functions that do \input). But I put in ``file1''
put in ``file2''
and ran ``tex \input\input file1''. It did not print ``In file2'', and TeX did not
give an error. It also had the strange effect of thinking my input file was
called ``.tex''!! This is definitly a bug, because it is not what ``TeX: The
Program'' says. Also if I try typing ``\input\input file1'' in response to the
`*' prompt, it does the same thing, except reverts to ``texput''.
P.S. TRIP should probably test this.
