The next time you need to add an image, don't do "point to file." Instead choose the menu item Insert -> Image. In the dialog box that pops up, there's a checkbox to use a document relative or root relative path. That's a "sticky" setting -- if you choose "document relative" (no leading slash), it'll stay document relative for future images. (Even if you go back to the "point to file" method.) I can only guess that somehow that option got set to "root relative," and from that point on your images have been using root relative paths.
