Bio-Rad reader sometimes looks for an incorrectly named PIC file

When opening a Bio-Rad PIC file via its companion lse.xml or data.raw files, some datasets look for a nonexistent PIC file:

curtis@monk:~$ showinf data/biorad/erica/2-4827_30/lse.xml 
Checking file format [Bio-Rad PIC]
Initializing reader
Exception in thread "main" File not found : /Users/curtis/data/biorad/erica/2-4827_30/2-4827_30_raw01.PIC
        at loci.formats.RandomAccessStream.<init>(
        at loci.formats.FormatReader.setId(
        at loci.formats.FormatHandler.setId(
        at loci.formats.ImageReader.setId(

For now, the workaround is to select the .pic file itself when opening the dataset.
