1. Why won't my emacs v18.57 resolv any but full pathname files?

( We are using Emacs v 18.57 on an IBM Risc System 6000 running AIX 3.1.x
  and AIX 3.2).

For us, emacs will not locate files in the current directory without
providing a full pathname.  We have to use this alias:

        alias emacs 'emacs `pwd`/\!*'

Unfortunately, this alias will not work with our automounted filesystems.

Have I done something wrong in compiling or setting up emacs?  Have others
had a similar problem that they were able to figure out?

Any suggestions or insight would definitely be appreciated.
