Running the following command results in SOMETIMES getting a relative path and SOMETIMES getting an absolute path in the database:
The changeLogFile, in turn, has includes done in the following manner:
I have verified it'll keep the absolute path even though the changeLogFile is set to a relative path.
It seems like something about the include might cause it to switch to absolute path (but only some of the time?).
I have literally just purged and rebuilt a schema and the next time i run it, it will do it relatively, so this is very weird.
This seems to correlate to issues for paths with spaces in them.
