File path expansion problem (DLL version 1.5.3-1 and earlier)

when i call

myeditor.exe /etc/services

where myeditor is a win32 editor program, then i get a error messages
that the file


does not exist. I think there a two problems:

1) instead of ...\etc\... there is only ...\tc\...
2) etc directory is not in ...\home\martin...

Is this only a problem of my system, or also reproduceable on other systems

BTW: I am using default shell after installation, which i think is bash.
Got the same error on my previous version (perhaps two weeks old).
