Follow-up Comment #4:

As mex files are for legacy matlab support we should follow their conventions.
Reading the document from mathworks "Introducing Mex files" they write

If you invoke the function conv2 from inside
MATLAB, the interpreter looks through the list of directories on the MATLAB
search path. It scans each directory looking for the first occurrence of a
named conv2 with the corresponding filename extension from the table or .m.
When it finds one, it loads the file and executes it. MEX-files take
over M-files when like-named files exist in the same directory. 

So the suggestion of allowing the m-files to exist in a different directory
seems to be a bad idea to me. I'm closing this bug report as the orginal bug
was fixed two years ago, and the follow up comment doesn't seem to be a bug.
