I'd like to keep the patch tracker for patches which add new features.  If you have a patch to submit that fixes a bug, it would be better to use the bug tracker.

I wonder if you are maybe fixing the wrong thing.  Why are temporary file names like '\octave-help-xxxxxx' being generated?  Are those valid filenames on Windows systems?  If so, then why is it possible to use them for some purposes (opening and writing to them, apparently) but not others (deleting)?  What is the value of P_tmpdir in your version of Octave?  How does the help function generate temporary file names?

Hello

I submit a change set to fix error of deleting a file file path which begins with '\' on MinGW (dev source).

Without the patch, octave often fail to delete temporary files with path like '\octave-help-xxxxx'

Regards
