Found the bastard! Definite bug - when parsing a file path, POV-Ray 
attempts to eliminate ".." by stripping the preceding component from the 
path - e.g. "foo/bar/../something" becomes "foo/something"; 
unfortunately, it does this even if the previous element happens to be 
".." as well. So "../../file0.pov" simply becomes "file0.pov".

FAIL.

I'll go fix that. Dick, would you mind entering a report on 
http://bugs.povray.org in the meantime, so this gets listed as a known bug?
