[tex-live] bibtex and explicit bib-extension

this is a property of the TeX Live (Kpathsea) file search mechanism used for
(almost) all programs. When searching for a .bib (or .tex) file that
extension is added if only if not already present. This is intentional and
not likely to change (certainly not for TeX Live 2013). I agree, however,
that the different behaviour of TeX Live and MikTeX is unfortunate.
The problem in bibtex is that the "Database file #..." message appends a
second .bib to the name. I am sure that will be corrected although perhaps
not for TL13.
