bug#5969: 23.1; tex-bibtex-file incorrect dir issue

Subject: bug#5969: 23.1; tex-bibtex-file incorrect dir issue

When visiting a LaTeX file foo.tex not in one's home directory,
tex-file (C-c C-f) works fine, but tex-bibtex-file (C-c TAB) switches
to the home directory before running bibtex, causing a fatal bibtex

This is because the Emacs 21 line

        (file-dir (file-name-directory (buffer-file-name)))

was changed in Emacs 23 to

        (source-file (tex-main-file))
        (file-dir (file-name-directory source-file))

and (tex-main-file) is documented to: "return the relative name of the
main file."  So a simple fix would be

        (file-dir (file-name-directory (expand-file-name source-file)))
