OK, we know that filesets as they are right now have problems with absolute paths
and especially with multi-route systems.  There have been several proposals to
fix - making dir optional and assume all includes are absolute paths if it is
not present, for example - but none has been implemented yet.

I'm surprised that I'm unable to find a report that would qualify as duplicate of
this one.

I'm not quite sure why leaving the drive letter of isn't working on Windows, but
then again I'm not sure when drive letters get added and/or removed by
getAbsolutePath and similar operations.

Michael, you have a workaround for now and it is pretty unlikely that we are
going to get this fixed before Ant 1.6.  I'm changing the title and the severity,
hope this is OK for you.
