QueryTrueName() apparently truncates its argument at the first semicolon, decapitating include lists. This behavior also seems to affect the TRUENAME command and @TRUENAME function, and probably lots of other stuff too. WAD?

WAD. See the help for TRUENAME -- it says "for a file", with no mention of
supporting multiple files or include lists (which would be meaningless
anyway).

Okay. (But be advised that it does it in the pathname part too. No, I don't put semicolons in directory names myself -- but I've seen users do weirder things.)
