HI -- I've got a question about how the media manager converts
absolute to relative paths. Here's what I did:
1. change to directory d:\home\shared\gramps (on windows, obviously)
2. Open a grdb in d:\home\shared\gramps\
3. add a media object: d:\home\shared\gramps\media\test\test.jpg
4. using media manager, convert the absolute to relative path.
5. The modified path is:
In other words, no change. Shouldn't it change to media\test\test.jpg ?
Next, in the same session I did this:
1. using media manager, replace "d:" with ""
my test case is now \home\shared\gramps\media\test\test.jpg
2. using media manager, convert absolute to relative. The resulting path is:
This works, but the leading "..\..\..\.." is not needed, since "\home"
starts at root (for the drive)
This sure looks odd to me. I suppose the problem may be that the full
path to the grdb begins with "d:", but I'm not sure.

Please move this to the gramps-windows list before someone starts
pulling out their hair and screaming.
