Follow-up Comment #2, bug #43926 (project octave):

Took a brief look in the fullfile.m function. Some comments:

1. In 4.1.0+ there's a completely new fullfile.m version compared to 3.9.0+.

2. (Just a hunch) maybe the various "/" entries _in the last tests_ had better
be replaced by filesep characters (variable 'fs') to match the system's native
file separator character ?  
...but then again....:

3. On Windows, where filesep equals "\" (backslash), Octave very very often
works equally well with "/" (forward slash) file separators. In fact I rarely
use backslashes when doing file handling stuff with Octave on Windows.
Moreover, several Java functions when called through the Java interface simply
do not accept backslashes as file separators, they want forward slashes,
whether on Windows or not.

So relying on the system's filesep may need a little more rigid
