In the previous version of MIT-Scheme (9.1.1) I was able to load a file using a
period followed by a slash to indicate that the file is to be found the current

Thus the following either of the following two invocations would work from
the terminal or a shell script:

scheme --load ./file
scheme --load './file'

But now trying to this will throw and error:

;Loading "./src/1.2.scm"...
;The object here, passed as an argument to open-input-string, is not a string.
;To continue, call RESTART with an option number:
; (RESTART 1) => Return to read-eval-print level 1.

This is a very minor issue and I almost didn't bother creating a new account to report it, but I thought that I might as well in case someone will benefit to know why their script may have stopped working.
