The path *returned* is relative to the start point. The target path is
figured out normally (i.e. relative to the current directory if an
absolute path is not given).

In your example, you aren't passing in an absolute Windows path - you
give a path relative to the current drive (since no drive is specified).

Windows file pathing is hopeless, but it isn't the job of Python's
documentation to explain its quirks.
