Follow-up Comment #23, bug #57730 (project octave):

The latest comment got truncated, but it contained a huge list of directories
in PATH, including Anaconda, Matlab, PuTTY, and whatever's in C:\usr\bin.

You may not have permission to remove things from the global PATH, but can you
try reducing the number of directories that are in PATH inside of Octave by
using setenv("PATH", "...")? The new value of PATH in Octave should be
inherited by any programs started from Octave.

Since the sh.exe included with Octave works for everyone else, my guess is
that the more additional programs and bundles that are included in the PATH
variable, the more likely that some program or DLL will interfere with the
expected behavior. Since Windows uses PATH for DLL search (instead of
LD_LIBRARY_PATH like other systems), it may be that the right executable is
being called, but the wrong "msys" or other DLLs are being found.
