I have tracked it down to this line of code in 

localrootfolder = starteamrootfolder.getPathFragment();

On my system, this returns the final portion of my starteamrootfolder 
rather than the full path of the default working folder, which was what 
we want.

For my build file, I have
and the localrootfolder gets set to "cccc" after this line.

The correct value should be "C:/myproject/aaaa/bbbb/cccc", which can be 
gotten by calling getPath() instead of getPathFragment() on 

A patch is attached.
