#7075: Issues with translating plugins

 It's not really a ticket to fix something. But there is an issue, I
 noticed. I'm running WordPress 2.6 (rev 8030) and I wrote some plugins
 (just for me) and because I'm a native German speaker I created a german
 translation. Everything worked fine and then I noticed that my plugins are
 not translated anymore.

 I found a way to fix this: I have to use the complete local path starting
 with "/home/.../wordpress-folder/wp-content/plugins/my-plugin". I'm not
 unfamiliar with development so I remember my old function to get the path
 of the plugin. I'm very sure that it always was "wp-content/plugins/my-
 plugin". But it stopped working at some time. I also noticed that the
 function "get_template_directory" results the complete local path (again,
 starting with "/home/my-profile/.../wordpress-folder/..."). btw, I'm using
 Linux with the Apache server and PHP 5.x.

 Something has changed, but I seem to be the only one noticing that. I
 tested a plugin of another german developer and it did not work. The other
 guy told me his copy of WP 2.6 is running fine. Actually, it's running
 different. He told me he loads his plugins and the language file with a
 path starting with "wp-content" instead of "/home/my-profile/.../wordpress

 Is there anyone out there with the same problem as me?
