Has any one tried to do an strace of octave while running the exist function. It appears that exist("<var>","var") will search the patch for dot-m and oct-files even though a variable was explicitly asked for. This certainly makes this significantly slower than it needs to be. Also, strace appears to show that the path is being searched twice, by exist!! It seems to me that there are some rather simple improvements in the speed of the exist function that might be made...
