i just checked local copy of matlab (for unix: v 4.2c) and i don't see the above
behaviour in it. in fact it gives me error for anything like a = load file ....

also, if the file is a simple ascii text file, one does not have to specify 
as it can detect that by itself. "load file_name" will load the contents of 
into a variable named "file_name" minus the file name extension.

i don't have any problems. seems to be useful also. but i think this behaviour
