I cannot reproduce it fully on trunk. I can load .asd files just fine.
I get the "bar.li" behaviour too - we should probably add .abcl or
.lisp only if the name has no extension, to avoid confusion; that's
what sbcl does, and probably most other lisps.

I recently modified readFunctionBytes in Lisp.java to be able to load
stuff from remote jars (i.e. when the protocol is jar:x and x is not
"file"); that may have something to do with it, and maybe with Mark's
test failures too.
