Script imports a folder of images, located on the desktop.

In an import records script step, Specify Folder location, the returned path is unexpected;

The source folder is on my desktop, yet choosing a folder in defining the script step, yields the first path. Which I thought was curious when I wrote the script. It worked correctly on my mac however.

The import did not work on another mac (with the correct source folder on its desktop . Redefining the import step on the other mac yielded the second path (i.e. 'normal')

file:../../../../../Desktop/ImagesToImport/

file:../ImagesToImport/

I am curious to know why the first path.

Is this a result of having multiple user accounts on my mac, and hence the path is actually something like:

/volumename/users/userME/Desktop
