Strange -- Winamp doesn't recognize paths with a forward slash as
absolute paths when loading the playlist and prepends the current path.
However, if you were to move the playlist to the root directory and
play from there, Winamp would play all the tracks correctly.
This sounds like a problem with Winamp and not something that should be
fixed in Rockbox. Possible workarounds:
1. Store all your playlists in the root directory
2. Write a small script to convert the forward slashes to backslashes
(doesn't Winamp provide a scripting mechanism?)
