Item10581 broke links to images in the output of PublishPlugin.

The problem is the call to File::Spec->abs2rel in _rsrcpath() in Publisher.pm.

In my case, $rsrcloc was rsrc/Sandbox/Jomo/CommentTest/za.png and $odir was /Sandbox. abs2rel returned ../home/config/wiki/foswiki_1x06/bin/rsrc/Sandbox/Jomo/CommentTest/za.png.

This is consistent with the documentation for abs2rel, which says If $path is relative, it is converted to absolute form using rel2abs(). This means that it is taken to be relative to cwd().

I found I could make this work by temporarily chdir-ing to / for the call to abs2rel, but I doubt if that is an acceptable solution.

I could also make it work by prefixing $rsrcloc with / if it didn't already start with /. Maybe a better solution would use File::Spec->file_name_is_absolute, but I haven't tried that.

Both of the solutions I tried gave the correct result, which is ../rsrc/Sandbox/Jomo/CommentTest/za.png

No need to chdir, it's enough to remove the leading / from the $odir.
