Follow-up Comment #18, bug #55823 (project octave):

What I see in comment #13 to #16 is IMO the same thing as the original bug. or
can you explain the difference in more detail?

AFAIU the bug is that the editor erroneously links an editor tab's contents
with a newly created subdir (AFAICS not necessarily a temp dir) at the very
moment that F9 is pressed on a statement containing rmdir on that subdir.
The exact behavior may vary but I think it is the same bug in different

Joel complained that the editor tab was closed, but that was with a script
that wasn't changed.
If something was changed in the script (e.g., adding a space or so) the editor
still wants to close the tab but correctly recognizes the change and prompts
for confirmation.

I really doubt, or rather, I really can't imagine that the io package has
anything to do with it, apart from generating and trying to close an unpacked
archive containing a directory structure in different functions, which
triggers the bug.
For the time being I'll leave the title as-is.
