Update of bug #53579 (project octave):
Priority: 5 - Normal => 7 - High
Follow-up Comment #1:
The new behavior is in the current stable 4.3.0+ version.
This means that the new release is incompatible with
the current 4.2.2 and with Matlab.
It may be confusing for users of the new release to just
report: "error: 'aa' undefined near line 5 column 3..."
where previously the variable was still defined.
It might be best to detect this case (variable in global
list and passed as argument) and report it as a warning.
This choice is compatible with the current Matlab
which behaves like 4.2.2, but also produces a confusing
