[Boost-docs] quickbook xinclude bug?

I'm trying to generate docs for proto manually. I'm on the trunk.
Proto's 'proto.qbk' contains the line

[xinclude reference.xml]

which is in the same directory as proto.qbk itself:

% ls -l /home/troy/Projects/boost/trunk/src/libs/proto/doc/proto.qbk
-rw-r--r-- 1 troy troy 11250 Jan 24 06:54

% ls -l /home/troy/Projects/boost/trunk/src/libs/proto/doc/reference.xml
-rw-r--r-- 1 troy troy 36374 Jan 24 06:54

I cd to a build directory parallel to the source tree, and generate the
xml with quickbook. I've hacked some couts into the xinclude action:

% cd /home/troy/Projects/boost/trunk/build/libs/proto/doc &&
../../../bin/quickbook --output-file=proto.xml
Generating Output File: proto.xml
returning path=../../../../../src/libs/proto/doc/reference.xml

I doublecheck the path to reference.xml in the generated proto.xml:

% grep reference.xml proto.xml
   <xi:include href="../../../../../src/libs/proto/doc/reference.xml" />

And I check the path:

% ls ../../../../../src
ls: cannot access ../../../../../src: No such file or directory

Wrong. There is one ../ too many:

% ls ../../../../src
BuildSlave.cmake Jamroot Welcome.txt boost/
boost.png doc/ libs/ project-config.jam tools/
CMakeLists.txt LICENSE_1_0.txt bin.v2/ boost-build.jam
bootstrap.sh* index.htm more/ rst.css wiki/
INSTALL README.txt bjam* boost.css dist/
         index.html people/ status/

Am I really seeing a bug here? I notice that the xinclude action uses
the deprectated normalize() boost::filesystem function.
