[Patch] Fix a path problem with registry related ldb

No, Matthieu - this patch isn't right. The provision calls 
"setup_registry" with the registry LDB file names as argument without 
path specification. This method calls "registry.open_ldb" (you can find 
it in "pyregistry.c") which is basically a wrapper for 
"ldb_wrap_connect" (the standard s4 LDB opener). Here the interesting 
part (the path is called "url" in this call):

line 204 >         real_url = private_path(ldb, lp_ctx, url);

You see that the file name is enhanced with the private directory as 
prefix and so the path specification fits. Therefore your problem with 
the registry LDB files in the current folder lies elsewhere (maybe a 
wrong configure?).
