A variation of this issue came up recently. Textadept cannot handle
relative paths very well because the question "relative to what?" comes
up. However, in your examples, you illustrate something that can be
improved: Textadept can do better to handle './' and '../' sequences. I
will work on this. Thanks for the report.

Thanks for your contribution! I will commit this.
