Unfortunately, Apache treats all non-absolute pathnames as relative to the 
server root directory. It will never pass a non-absoulute path to 
dlopen(). But we could change it to only do this if the relative pathname 
contains at least one slash.

I will ask the other upstream developers what they think of such a change.
