Misbehaving relative paths

I'm having issues with an architect's revit model, where although he's got relative paths for his linked models, they're not properly relative. He has his main models sitting in a directory, then the linked models in a subdirectory, but the saved path is going up a few levels then back down to the same spot, and then into the subdirectory.


Folder structure is like this:



In the Centrals directory there's a few models (model1.rvt, model2.rvt), and in the Links directory there's a bunch of files (link1.rvt, link2.rvt, etc).


The saved path to the linked files should be "Links\link1.rvt", but its saving as "..\Revit\Centrals\Links\link1.rvt".


There's a butt-load of links, and I'm trying to get the models to pick up the links without me having to faff about with Reload From on each one. Anyone know how to get revit to strip out the superfluous bits of the saved path?
