Comment 2 Nimimo 2013-06-04 12:17:13 EDT
This works with both kinds of paths.  Thanks!
Comment 3 Richard W.M. Jones 2013-06-04 12:20:14 EDT
Closing based on verification comment 2.

Fix will appear in the next release (4.1.2 probably)
Comment 4 Nimimo 2013-06-04 16:49:40 EDT
I just noticed the change breaks downloaded packages.
Comment 5 Richard W.M. Jones 2013-06-05 05:20:41 EDT
Please verify 922527132403f79d82a0d2cb457b2a7cbc7dbbe8.
Comment 6 Nimimo 2013-06-05 05:47:05 EDT
This works in all cases — with package names and package paths.
