Yes, this is true. 

I've brought it into line with all other tasks, because I didn't know
the original intent was to make the attribute relative to the tasks
basedir attribute. Jesse Glick has already pointed out that this
change was not backwards compatible.

As this now causes problems (I didn't expect anybody to rely on this -
at least for me - undocumented behavior), the only option I see is to
revert my patch - at least partially, the task should at least try to
check whether the style attribute contains an absolute path.

I'll do exactly that.
