Follow-up Comment #35, bug #36477 (project octave):

(Sorry I had very little time the last months to follow this discussion, but
I'll try to pick up again)

@Markus, comment #33:
AFAIK C:\Users\<username>\Documents\octave\  is meant for what the name
implies, i.e., work documents, not so much for settings.
All files in %APPDATA% are user-editable, although the subdir is hidden.

On another note (somewhat related here):
Am I right to read in the docs that an .octaverc file can be read in any
directory where Octave would start? Do we have a way to indicate Octave in
which subdir to start? I tried an .octaverc file containing just "bbb = 6;" in
C:\Users\Philip\MyDocs and told the GUI to start there, but after startup
variable bbb is unknown. Octave seems to stubbornly only invoke the .octaverc
in my %USERPROFILE% (= C:\Users\Philip\).
