Summary0000417: indirect readfrom makes a file path leak into the read string
DescriptionIt looks like the area string is still in the pool as 'current string' when the
readfrom data line is added to it. The problem does not happen with explicit
file names, only if the file name is itself contained in a string variable.
Steps To ReproduceA test like this (create the data file first, actual content is not important)

  string t;
  t = "datas/fichier.dat";
  show readfrom t;
