Does your code call functions defined in .m files?  If so, you may be
running into a bug that was actually in the kpathsearch library that's
used for looking up files in the LOADPATH.  I don't remember the exact
sequence of events, but I think I fixed the bug in an older version of
the kpathsearch library, then it reappeared when I upgraded to a newer
version of the library, but it was fixed for 2.0.12 (I think -- it is
definitely fixed for 2.0.13).
