This now seems to be fixed, possibly by this recent cset:

Bug is still present, but urlread has also become a core function. Updated to use chol.cc to show the problem.

Confirmed still present with the development version of Octave. Updated to use urlread since time.cc is now a built-in.

This is obscure, but I thought I would report it. The following sequence of commands, which is designed to trigger a warning about reloading functions, corrupts the symbol table.

As you can see, localtime becomes aliased to the function with the same name as the .oct file.
