Well, for the record, I've already run into a problem with this:

(module foo mzscheme
  (require "bar.scm")
  (display x) (newline))

(module bar mzscheme
  (define x 1)
  (provide x))

default-load-handler: cannot open input file: "/home/dougo/fred/scratch/bar.scm" (No such file or directory; errno=2)

I'm hesitant to call this a bug, since it's not really the intended
usage of loading modules, but it does sort of seem like `require'
should use the module directory (see that other thread...) for
relative path strings, rather than the runtime value of
`(current-load-relative-directory)' (or, in this case,
`(current-directory)') when the module is actually invoked.
