It's easy to check that the current directory is not either the home directory or the java installation directory before adding the contents of javaclasspath.txt.  I believe I fixed it in this cset (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/4262598620ae).

The static classpath is set by a javaclasspath.txt file in one of the following directories

1. [octave_config_info("fcnfiledir") "/java/"]
2. home directory
3. current working directory when the java machine starts (when any of the java related functions is called for the first time)

The end result is that entries on the static javaclasspath get duplicated if "3" is one of the two above.

carandraug@microna:~$ pwd
carandraug@microna:~$ cat javaclasspath.txt
carandraug@microna:~$ octave
octave-gui:1> javaclasspath



      - empty -
octave-gui:2> exit

carandraug@microna:~$ cd playground/
carandraug@microna:~/playground$ octave
octave-gui:1> javaclasspath



      - empty -
