I have applied a similar patch to Guile, before realizing you had a
newer version.  Sorry for the huge delay here.

I don't think this would have helped very much in this case, given that
taking an absolute path and turning it into a path suffix is not
something that a path library is really good for.  In reality all we
need is a key that corresponds in a 1-to-1 relationship with a source
file -- a SHA1 hash would have done as well.  But oh well, c:/foo ->
/c/foo it is!
