Drag and drop files into octave GUI

Ian McCallion
It is useful to be able to drag a file from a Windows Explorer window into an ordinary commandline window, an  octave cli window or an octave GUI window. In all cases the fully qualified filename is placed under the cursor. 

For commandline and cli the filename contains the windows filesep, '\'.  For octave GUI though the name contains the unix filesep '/', which is somewhat annoying, though obviously easy to work around once you are aware of it. Is this a lnown problem?

Cheers... Ian
