I get the same behavior in 9.2 on Windows. If you open a file and then save as a new file name, when you run it, you get the error. Running path(path()) fixes the problem.

No response.  Closing report.

This sounds similar to bug #65548.

Can the new function be used after you executed `path(path())`?

Can you reproduce the issue with the release candidate for Octave 9.2.0? See: https://octave.discourse.group/t/release-candidate-for-octave-9-2-0-available/5579

OS = windows 11
GNU octave 9.1.0

(1) I have a m file (analysis_2.m) which has a function analysis_2 and runs fine
(2) save it as a analysis_2b.m and change function name to analysis_2b.m and run it. The following error occurs

error: 'analysis_2b' undefined near line 1, column 1

This happens to me so many times.
