Follow-up Comment #14, bug #54463 (project octave):

yes "regular" relative paths work fine. I was thinking more of relative paths
on another drive, but that doesn't work properly anyway in Octave (MSYS). That
MS-DOS legacy (which still works in Win 10) was complicated enough and many
people simply don't know about it. Maybe better so :-)

A full path on Windows starts with:
- one letter (case-insensitive) followed by a semicolon
- \\<Server name>\   (maybe //<server name>/ also works)
- file:///
- maybe even http:// or ftp://
so there is some choice....

I wouldn't be surprised if network paths and UNC paths don't work anyway. 
If only the first, maybe the first two, in te list above would work the goal
is achieved.
