Description of problem:

Publican print_used incorrectly detects files from higher levels in the directory structure as unused (that is where they are included with a relative path such as ../).

I came across this in a real book but I've constructed a simpler example (attached as well). In this tree:

$ tree
├── en-US
│   ├── Author_Group.xml
│   ├── Book_Info.xml
│   ├── common
│   │   └── Chapter.xml
│   ├── images
│   │   └── icon.svg
│   ├── Preface.xml
│   ├── Revision_History.xml
│   ├── Section.xml
│   ├── Unused_Test.ent
│   └── Unused_Test.xml
└── publican.cfg

Unused_Test.xml includes common/Chapter.xml
common/Chapter.xml includes ../Section.xml

Running print_unused on this tree results in:

$ publican print_unused

List of unused XML files in en-US

Removing Section.xml will however result in the book failing to build.

See also: Bug # 740417

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

publican 3.2.0

How reproducible:

Reproducer attached.

Actual results:

Section.xml is listed as unused.

Expected results:

Section.xml and other files include from paths earlier in the tree (but still within the book) should not be listed as unused.
