I have been using paths relative to the defaultFolder.  It might be  
that Rev looks both places, but since Rev starts up with the default  
folder at the application (standalone or engine) then I suspect that  
the key is defaultFolder.

Chris, could you have changed the default folder?

Try something like this when changing the default folder:

*************
try
    put the defaultFolder into savedDefaultFolder
    set the defaultfolder to defaultFolderForThisTask
    ... blah blah blah ...
catch e
finally
    set the defaultFolder to savedDefaultFolder
end try
*************

The idea is to minimize the chance that it gets left with a value you  
didn't expect.

Dar
