Paths are relative to the directory from which the Max application is run, usually /Applications/Max5 on OS X. It should works that way on Windows too, though there may be different behaviours.
You have to use thispatcher or scripting to obtain patch-relative paths.
Here is a standard solution. Note that as it depends on thispatcher you have copy-paste it into your top-level patch (and reopen it to activate the loadmess). You may encapsulate all objects except the thispatcher into a subpatch though.
