Summary0002065: Project folder is stored by absolute rather than relative path
DescriptionJust as the links to clips used in a project (see issue 0002064), the path to the "project folder" is saved in absolute rather than relative terms. This has the effect that when a project directory (containing the project file plus clips, etc. in subdirs) is moved to a new directory or renamed, a wrong project folder path remains listed in the project file, and the "ladspa", "titles" and "thumbs" subdirs will be re-created (and used!) at that old path.

As with issue 0002064, this makes it nearly impossible to meaningfully archive "self-sufficient" projects, i.e. those projects which contain all files which they require in a single directory and its subdirectories. That needs to change!
Steps To Reproduce* Create a test directory
* Create a new kdenlive project, set its project folder to the test directory and save the project file itself to that directory. Close kdenlive
* Move (don't copy) the *contents of* the test directory to a new location
* Open the kdenlive project from that new location
* Observe that "ladspa", "titles" and "thumbs" subdirs will be re-created in the original location
