%attach misc.sage; a bug?

Hi!

I'm running sage 5.11 on linux. I have a file called misc.sage which %attach seems to not like very much. The problem seems to be the filename, since even an empty file or just a print statement in it produce the same reaction. Is this a bug? Is this present in 5.12 too?

sage: %attach misc.sage                                                                                                                                                                    [2/708]

Try using quotes: %attach 'misc.sage'. Without quotes, misc is interpreted as being a module within Sage -- for example, type just misc.sage from the sage: prompt.

It also works with absolute path:

sage: %attach /tmp/misc.sage
