Windows (relative) path cannot be interpreted (correctly) as URI-References.
And Windows absolute paths usually don't work well as base URIs to construct
references. IMHO this is a naming problem, and I don;t have a clean solution
to this !

Other option is to subscribe to the libxml [1] list and discuss the issue
there (and possibly send patches).

  Sorry I do not run Windows, and don't intend to change this anytime
in the foreseable future, so if you have troubles on that platform,
the best is to discuss this on the list and provide patches (Igor
is the maintainer of the MSC port, there is also a Cygwin one).
