[Pkg-dia-team] Bug#492400: should not use absolute Image paths (esp. SVG export)

Package: dia
Version: 0.96.1-7
Severity: normal

When embedding an Image (e.g. a PNG) in dia, dia seems to use a
relative path, if the image is in the same directory (or
downwards) as the diagram. It seems to prefer an absolute path,
if the PNG is elsewhere and one uses the file selection dialog
to select the PNG.

In all cases, dia uses absolute paths for images in exported
SVGs. Of course, this can lead to annoying problems when moving
a project or checking out in another location.
