Follow-up Comment #12, bug #55823 (project octave):

A way to reproduce with 50% use of the io package:

1. Open a spreadsheet file (.ods, .xlsx, .gnumeric) using
ptr = xlsopen (<filename>, 0, 'oct')

note the location of the unzipped archive in the ptr structure and copy to
clipboard (it is in ptr.workbook) (or keep it some other way)

2. exit Octave
(unzipped archive won't be cleaned up)

3. restart Octave
tdirname = 
(i.e., assign full pathname of unzipped archive to tdirname by pasting), or
type it in if not copied to clipboard.

4. in a blank file in editor, type
confirm_recursive_rmdir (0, "local");
rmdir (tdirname, "s");

and execute these lines. The bug will be triggered (at least on my system).

Next step:
try with any unzipped archive. ATM I just don't have a suitable archive at
hand other than spreadsheet files.
