The XML output is being interpreted by another program, one which
(unfortunately) is dumb regarding ..\..\ path expansions.  I certainly
could change it to properly handle this, but what I am more curious about
is the fact that the path outputs changed.  I'd like to understand why they
changed, and my review of the subversion commit logs didn't lead me to an
answer ((admittedly, I am a novice novice at this....))

And 100% yes, you're correct, I could set my working directory to some
location which yields more desirable paths.  One place which would
identically replicate the old behavior would be to set my working directory
to another drive, since in Windows there isn't a ..\..\..\ upwards
expression which would lead to "above" one drive letter over another ...

Thanks for your thoughts on this,
