Media becomes inaccessible when savedir is relative #11

The savedir parameter of dokuwiki is by default set to ./data. If you run Dokuwiki with this kind of configuration, when using the dokuwiki-saml plugin, the media breaks (i.e. pictures stop loading). Also, the media manager becomes unaccessible, because it thinks an admin is no longer an admin.

saml_user_file is set here using $conf['savedir']

$this->saml_user_file = $conf['savedir'] . '/users.saml.php';

saml_user_file is later referenced in different places, such as here:

$lines = file($this->saml_user_file);

However! Depending on where exactly where the code is called from, the current working directory can be different, resulting in that sometimes, when you use a relative path like this, it tries to look at the wrong path. This is true when trying to use media manager.

Workaround: Made sure that $conf['savedir'] is configured as an absolute path, i.e. /var/www/dokuwiki/data in my install. (This is what I've done in my install, rather than try to fix this bug.)
