we use Org-mode for software documentation and have come across the following behaviour with version 7.6 (release_7.6.71.g22fa9):

our documentation is located in the directory doc/usage, e.g. doc/usage/index.org or doc/usage/tutorial.org, whereas Org-Mode's setupfiles are stored in doc/common/org, e.g. doc/common/org/setup-toc-large or doc/common/org/setup-common. When we include a setupfile from doc/usage/index.org using

#+setupfile: ../common/org/setup-toc-large

everything works fine. The path of the setupfile is relative to the path of index.org.

However, when setup-toc-large itself includes another setupfile with setup-common using a relative path, the path is still treated as relative to index.org, not relative to setup-toc-large. Therefore, when using the line

#+setupfile: setup-common

within setup-toc-large, Org-Mode fails to find setup-common. When changing the above line to

#+setupfile: ../common/org/setup-common

the documentation builds successfully. 

We would expect Org-mode to search for an include file relative to the file that contains the setupfile-statement. Maybe a simple solution would be to temporarily set the current working dir to the path of the including file (around line 17620 in org.el)? Many thanks in advance!
