Follow-up Comment #5, bug #51388 (project octave):

If this problem occurs inside of a block of code, a script, or a function,
then it seems less likely that it is related to the GUI. The GUI current
directory state is only updated when control is returned to the interactive

Calling cd and pwd in a loop in a script or function should not have any
interaction with the GUI state. It's possible that the fact of the GUI running
has some incidental impact on the overall state of the system, but there
should be no additional code delays or race conditions due to the GUI running
while this loop is trying to change the working directory.
