1) Export All Playlists still uses absolute Paths on export

2) Exporting network files uses absolute Paths (maybe by design), whereas local files use relative Path when exporting from Send To

3) Ideally this would be a setting in the Options (Tools > Options > Tags & Playlist) that allows the user to define if absolute or relative Paths should be used (and perhaps with a sub-option for network files)

1) This used to be the case in MM4 too -- though I agree that this should be probably changed/unified

i.e. in 5.0.2 it is fixed to the degree of MM4 functionality
The rest targeted to 5.1..

1) might be re-targeted to 5.0.2 per feedback here

1) is implemented in 2503, i.e. unified with the 'Export all playlists' script (which also improves performance of the script)

3) Added 'Use extended M3U' and 'Force relative paths' checkboxes (both enabled by default) in build 2503
Added to 'Tools > Options > Tags & Playlist'
The same checkboxes we already use in 'Sync Profile > Playlists' for device sync.
