Update of bug #49203 (project octave):

                  Status:                    None => Need Info              


Follow-up Comment #1:

Is there a delay between when the file is saved and when the network-mapped
directory modification timestamp is updated?

After creating the file, what do the following (feel free to play with these
functions) show?

>> cd /tmp
>> dirinfo = dir (pwd); disp (ctime (dirinfo(1).statinfo.mtime))
Thu Sep 29 15:17:01 2016

>> edit testfun.m

>> fileinfo = dir (fullfile (pwd, "testfun.m")); disp (ctime
Thu Sep 29 16:06:11 2016

>> dirinfo = dir (pwd); disp (ctime (dirinfo(1).statinfo.mtime))

## some time passes, mtime changes?

On my system the mtimes of the file and the containing directory (not
network-mounted) are identical. When Octave encounters an unknown name, it
traverses the load path and looks for any directories that have modification
times later than the last time the directory was scanned. If the mtime has not
been updated, then there must not be any new files in that directory.
