Sorry, the change in macro longname construction should have read:
.local longname "`pathvar'`filename'"

Note the quotes around the concatenation.

The problem is that the final \ gets dropped from the path.

.di "`pathvar'"
F:\CELS\

Oddly, the initial macro seems to store this correctly

Changing the longname macro construction to...
.local longname `pathvar'`filename'
.di "`longname'"
F:\CELS35051403

...no effect
