Follow-up Comment #5, bug #36677 (project octave):

gnulib? AFAIK, until now gnulib is a bit alien to Octave-Forge.
Furthermore the spreadsheet functions are pure m-files. There's good reason to
keep it that way.

The behavior you describe (GNU describes) simply kills the functionality that
the spreadsheet functions need. Hopefully make_absolute_filename() will keep
that functionality.

But I'll also investigate if full pathnames are really needed. If not this
whole problem can simply be avoided.
