Dan and I are making good progress tracking this down.  So far we have
determined that there is a compatibility problem when using the -R
(--relative) option between some older versions and 2.6.1, but only in
certain circumstances.  For example, the problem shows up between 2.5.7
and 2.6.1, but not between 2.6.0 and 2.6.1.  I should have this nailed
down soon.

Please use caution with the --relative option and 2.6.1 until we get
this fully resolved.
