It seemed strange to me that the file paths would have
<dir>/../<anotherdir> in them.  Is this supposed to be this way?

Yes.  It is a valid pathname.  The software is designed to work
relative to itself.

What version of perl are you using?  I had another user experience
the same problem (but under BSD), and once he upgraded Perl, it
was fixed.

The real problem is you need a newer version of the File::Find
module that supports the -no_chdir option.  v5.6.1 of Perl, and later,
is known to have a version of File::Find that supports the option.

I may be able to modify mharc to work-around this problem so it
would work with older versions, but have not looked into it yet.
