Update of bug #57983 (project octave):

              Item Group:                    None => Unexpected Error       
                  Status:                    None => Need Info              
                 Summary: -p command-line argument causes spurious load-path
warnings => addpath with a relative directory causes load-path warnings


Follow-up Comment #2:

Thank you for the bug report. This is confirmed, but doesn't really have
anything to do with the command line option. This is really about the
'addpath' function with an argument that is a relative directory name.

For example:

mkdir /tmp/xyz
cd /tmp
addpath xyz

What does Matlab's addpath function do with relative directory arguments? Does
it expand to the full canonical directory name before adding it to the path?
Or does it do what Octave does? Is there a warning when the working directory
is changed after doing so?
