Hi Michael,

Thanks for locating the error. Since it's my code I will check on this  
(later) and commit.

Please note that using relative paths is an option, and is supposed to  
use as reference the 'current blender file directory'. This allows you  
to move entire projects around, or backup.

If you don't want that, use absolute paths. And yes, we currently don't  
have a means of changing/editing such paths inside of blender... it's  
about planning beforehand now!
