    Is it possible to let Kpathsea find my "chap1.tex" file?

If you want kpathsea to search TEXINPUTS, don't use "..".
Instead, add the relevant directory to the variable.

The point of specifying ./ or ../ or /... is precisely not to check the
path, but to give an explicit location. I understand the idea of having
the ../ be checked relative to each element in the path, but that is not
how it was ever intended, or implemented. I think the simpler behavior
is preferable ...
