Non-relative rom-path bug.

There is an error with parsing of non relative paths. Stepst to reproduse:
-Turn off relative paths in config and set "System ROMs" to: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Amiga Files\WinUAE\Kickstarts\
-Select a rom that is not detected by rom-scanner(example filename ks31edited.rom).
-Save config and quit WinUAE
-Start WinUAE and load the config from previous step

The path to ROM reads: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Amiga Files\WinUAE\$(FILE_PATH)\ks31edited.rom

expected result:
Path to ROM should read: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Amiga Files\WinUAE\Kickstarts\ks31edited.rom

Well, the problem apparently goes away if I name the directory something other than Kickstarts, so no big deal.

There is some really old (most likely added before I even knew what UAE is) FILE_PATH path logic which I am not sure what it is supposed to do. I guess it was some feature only meant for unix ports. Or something.

Perhaps it should be removed.

Additional info: It actually occurs when the path to rom file is identical to the path set in option win32.rom_path=
