When makefullnamestring()

  return maketexstring(fullnameoffile);

is called, assertion fails in maketexstring if
fullnameoffile == NULL, whereas maketexstring in
pdftex allows NULL.

An easy way out is to set fullnameoffile,
though it is not the full-path but the command
name in this case ( to see the command name is not bad ).
