      Description

      There is no way of providing an absolute path (e.g. c:\temp\wibble.tmp) to the
      FileResourceLoader because it always attempts to use the 2-argument File
      constructor (even if the path component is empty).

      The following fix resolves this problem:
      In FileResourceLoader.findTemplate replace:
      File file = new File( path, template );
      with
      File file = null;

      if("".equals(path))
      file = new File( template );
      else
      file = new File ( path, template );

      Note this does not introduce any security risks as the FileResourceLoader must
      be configured to search the empty ("") path.
