Really? As far as I understand the code, it sets \readfilename and  
\locreadfilename in a clean way, and that's all:

\def\makelocreadfilename#1%
   {\sanitizefilename#1\to\readfilename
    \checkfilename\readfilename
    \ifcase\kindoffile
      \edef\locreadfilename{\pathplusfile\f!currentpath{#1}}%
    \fi}

Anyway, if it's that call that should expand the filename, it does not  
work. In \dodotypefile the search is done previously by a call to  
\doifinputfileelse that sets \filepath (set again to \readfilename but I  
don't know why), but this result is not used since \readfilename is re-set  
to #3 by \makelocreadfilename. But you know this far better than I :-)
