Follow-up Comment #36, bug #55823 (project octave):

can you confirm the original bug report in comment #0 with the files in
comment #1 ?

What I find is that initially the command-line function try2_rmdir() works as
it should (= no bug), but after calling

xlsread('test.xlsx', 1, '', 'oct')

try2_rmdir() will reliably close editor tabs, sometimes several I opened.

In fact all that is needed to set the stage for the bug are these lines:

xls = xlsopen ('test.xlsx', 0, 'oct')  ## creates the unzipped archive
xls = xlsclose (xls)                   ## deletes the archive

It appears like some code snippet in the IO package somehow changes a state so
that the bug gets activated.
I checked the relevant io package OCT interface functions for some global
settings changes but I can't find any in there that look suspicious.
