You can load the m-file in the editor, add a breakpoint and step through it.
When at the line of a function call, click the "Step in..." button rather
than the "Next" button.
That way you can follow what the variable "filename" morphs into. I'm
curious why it would be 268 characters long.


[*] Maybe debug-stepping through a script doesn't work in 5.1.0. In that
case, make it into a function.
