There are no absolute paths to "/sbbs" in Synchronet configuration files by default (and ideally, never necessary). Sorry if this was like this before and I just didn't notice it. Instead, maybe just check if the path is a relative path and if it is, make it relative to the CWD (which is also the Synchronet ctrl directory, wherever that may happen to be). So the default could be just "dosemu.conf". If the key value is an absolute path (hint: use `isabspath()`), then just use it as is.
