Hm, verbatim seems not using the file interface: there's no trace about  
file found or not related to typefile. Another thing I did is to patch  
\processfileverbatim to trace what is actually the file used:

\def\processfileverbatim#1%
   {\par
    \bgroup
    \writestatus{jo}{file=#1}
    ...

And doing:

\typefile{list1.tex} % file in the current directory (ok)
\typefile{test-001.tex} % file in the \usepath directory (nok)
\typefile{joke} % file that does not exist (ok, an error is printed)
\typefile{pos2.tex} % again a local existing file (ok)

Gives the traces:

systems         : begin file typefile at line 79
jo              : file=list1.tex
systems         : searching for pdfr-ec on tex path
systems         : pdfr-ec located
(/usr/local/share/texmf-local/tex/context/base/pdfr-ec.tex)
jo              : file=test-001.tex
verbatim        : file joke does not exist
jo              : file=pos2.tex

So, the actual file path is not used, but it is the argument passed that  
is always used.
