Hi Ian,

This is a bug in the pathing routines for relative paths.  Most likely is fixed
in more recent snapshots.  The bug affected most of the routines but not ls for
some reason.

*NOTE* to all: be sure to read the Changelog before attempting any installation
of a snapshot or upgrade.  Be sure to backup before installing the snapshot or
upgrade.
