Summary: Playlist playing failure

Initial Comment:

when i'm trying to read a playlist with the rockbox
firmware, it displays well the number of files, but
does not start playing them.

Using a Debian GNU/Linux.

Typical Directory structure :

/Artist - Album Name/
/Artist - Album Name/Album.m3u
/Artist - Album Name/Album Name - Artist Name - Track

The playlist is generated like this :

# cd "Artist - Album Name"
# ls -1 *.mp3 > Abum.m3u

So the filenames are relative to the current path.
Perhaps this is what cause the failure. Of course, this
works fine with the archos original firmware :-)

I browsed the source (apps/playlist.c) but i didn't
find any visible bug. I can't say if the relative path
is responsible of the failure, i didn't look at the
code very close. I hope you'll find the bug :\
