It looks that way.

Michel, how about if you do  M-x toggle-debug-on-error,
and see how cd is actually being called and from where and why?

The last function called before the error was
inferior-octave-resync-dirs(), called by inferior-octave-startup(),
called by run-octave(nil). The directory that's not found via CDPATH
is whatever the current directory is when emacs was invoked.

The bizarre thing is:
1. This does not get triggered by octave 2.9.8
2. adding that directory to CDPATH does not change the result
3. I've tried using the emacs mode shipped with Octave by adding them
to the load-path, and get the same error. So it's probably not caused
by the difference between the two modes.

The curious thing is, the last time a CDPATH problem was reported in
relation to Octave, the solution was precisely to add the call to
inferior-octave-resync-dirs() ...


Thanks for looking into this - I could go back to Emacs 21.4, but CVS
23 looks so much more polished.
