Update of bug #31080 (project octave):

                Priority:              5 - Normal => 3 - Low                


Follow-up Comment #8:

This is definitely bad Microsoft mojo.  This microsoft support brief
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299648) explains that NTFS directory
timestamps are updated when directory contents change, but FAT formatted
filesystems do not update directory timestamps when contents change.

My guess is that most modern installs of Windows have an NTFS partition for
C:\ which explains why it works on the root partition.  Other drive letters
are typically things like USB memory sticks which are probably formatted with
FAT filesystems which explains why it tends not to work on them.

I'm lowering the priority for this bug.  Overhauling a huge amount of Octave
directory code to deal with Microsoft's bad design is not my first choice of
things that need improvement in Octave.
