At my work, addpath cannot process pathnames with drive letters that behind
the scenes map onto some UNC path.
Unfortunately due to strict security I cannot literally mention those path
names but I can come up with some lookalikes.

1. What doesn't work is a mapped drive letter, where the path to the user
looks like e.g., 'Q:\full\path\to\subdir\on\network' and 'Q:\' points to some
server like '\\SP500.company.local'.

2. What does work is

addpath ('\full\path\onto\some\local\disk')

3. What also works is 

addpath ( ['\\servername.local_NTFS_joint_name' <rest of path]] )

addpath still works fine on Octave-7.2.0 (pfew) but not on dev Octave.
