Registered pageTSconfig file won't allow relative paths for include
As described in the documentation ([[https://docs.typo3.org/typo3cms/TyposcriptSyntaxReference/Syntax/Includes/]]) you can use relative paths to include a file or a bunch of files inside a folder.
This works as expected as long as you include your TSconfig as default TSconfig by calling \ExtensionManagementUtility::addPageTSConfig() in your ext_localconf.php.
If you register your TSconfig for possible includes by calling ExtensionManagementUtility::registerPageTSConfigFile() in your /Configuration/TCA/Overrides/pages.php, relative paths for file/directory include do not work.
# FILE: /Configuration/TSconfig/Page.ts <INCLUDE_TYPOSCRIPT: source="FILE:./RTE.ts">
# FILE: /Configuration/TSconfig/RTE.ts RTE >
Include of RTE.ts with relative path works:
// FILE: ext_localconf.php \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\ExtensionManagementUtility::addPageTSConfig( '<INCLUDE_TYPOSCRIPT: source="FILE:EXT:foo/Configuration/TSconfig/Page.ts">' );
Include of RTE.ts with relative path doesn't work:
// FILE: /Configuration/TCA/Overrides/pages.php \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\ExtensionManagementUtility::registerPageTSConfigFile( 'foo', 'Configuration/TSconfig/Page.ts', 'foo - PageTS' );
To make the include work for registered TSconfig you have to use one of these:
# FILE: /Configuration/TSconfig/Page.ts <INCLUDE_TYPOSCRIPT: source="FILE:EXT:foo/Configuration/TSconfig/RTE.ts"> # OR: <INCLUDE_TYPOSCRIPT: source="FILE:typo3conf/ext/foo/Configuration/TSconfig/RTE.ts">
All these examples also apply for relative paths to directories (DIR:./BackendLayouts/ extension="ts").

maybe not exactly the same, but I just recognized in v8.6.1:
In the TS template record, using "info / modify" there is the recommendation to use
Now I noticed that this does not work, but this:
So "EXT:" cannot be used somehow.
Is this related here or should this be a new issue?

I can confirm the behaviour described in the OP under TYPO3 8.7.1
Nested including of TS files does not work when the original file is loaded with ExtensionManagementUtility::registerPageTSConfigFile(),
no matter if that function call is placed in Configuration/TCA/Overrides/pages.php or in the ext_tables.php.
