    example \input $tx/bookdef

Can you send the actual file that fails and the actual error message?
Like Reinhard, a simple test works for me:

$ tex
This is TeX ...
*\input $HOME/.emacs

No, there haven't been any changes in plain TeX for many, many years.
And it was never concerned with filename parsing anyway.

I suspect some kind of macro expansion is getting in the way.
