.stignore ignored on v0.14.37-rc1

Hello, I don’t know if it’s a bug or wanted behaviour. This morning I switched on my Windows box which had been off for a while. Syncthing correctly upgraded to v0.14.37-rc1 from v.0.14.33 and started showing this message: [MFAHA] 09:31:50 WARNING: Loading ignores: include of “…/stignore”: not a relative path

I use for my folders a common ignore file which I include in the folder’s .stignore this way: #include …\stignore

It has always worked fine until today. The warning message in misleading because, as far as I know, …/stignore is a relative path.

Syncthing started syncing a lot of files/folders which should have been ignored. Stopped, downgraded to v0.14.36 and it works fine again. Please tell me if I should file a bug instead. Thanks a lot for everything

Yes, you should open a bug, this is related to a large refactor that landed in the RC. Thanks for spotting that.

Actually I’ve opened it myself: https://github.com/syncthing/syncthing/issues/4313
