File Browser bug

Now, I'm using ( 6762a6d23010+ (classdef) ) so this may not be present on default/stable.

When I try to open an m-file in the editor which contains an underscore character in the file name, which is not the first character, instead of opening the file in the editor, octave attempts to load it as a data file, i.e. I get:

>> error: load: failed to read matrix from file '/home/richard/octave/test/t_est.m'

in this case t_est.m contains just "disp('hello')"

I get the same behaviour using the context menu open option on the file browser, but I can open it fine using the editor open file methods.

Octave also does not return the prompt after displaying the error until you hit enter or CTRL+C.

Is this known, already fixed, or should I file a bug report?
