Hm, this is strange.  On my system (Debian with TeXLive 2005, without
the separate context package, but that shouldn't matter), it isn't found

(517)[21:48:19]frank at riesling:~$ kpsewhich --progname=context t-tikz.tex
(518)[21:48:24]frank at riesling:~$ ls /usr/share/texmf/context/pgf/frontendlayer/t-tikz.tex 
(519)[21:48:30]frank at riesling:~$ grep t-tikz.tex /usr/share/texmf/ls-R 
(520)[21:48:32]frank at riesling:~$

but it should.  As shown above, it's in the ls-R database, and it's in
the search patch for context:

$ kpsewhich --progname=context tikz.tex

(521)[21:49:41]frank at riesling:~$ kpsewhich --progname=context --show-path=tex | sed -e 's/:/\n/g' | grep /usr/share/texmf

So t-tikz.tex is definetely earlier than tikz.tex.  Next thing would be
to run kpsewhich with --debug, but I don't have time for this ATM.
