 It would be better to only prepend ~/.r.li/ if the filename isn't an
 absolute path (see G_is_absolute_path()), or possibly if it doesn't
 contain any directory separators.

 AFAIK, the GUI will see "old_file" in the ->gisprompt field and provide an
 absolute pathname. Either the ->gisprompt field needs to be removed (so
 it's just a string option), or the code needs to be changed to allow an
 absolute pathname. Or it could enumerate ~/.r.li/ and add all files found
 therein to the ->options field.

 Certainly, it shouldn't silently discard any directory components; that
 would leave the user trying to figure out why it isn't behaving as
