Follow-up Comment #3, bug #48351 (project octave):

Why not just change run.m to use canonicalize_file_name? The difference
between the two is that make_absolute_filename() works on paths as strings,
the files and directories don't have to actually exist. And
canonicalize_file_name requires files and directories to exist, follows
symlinks, and converts filesep characters. But in run.m we already know the
directory exists, so it should be safe.
