You are misunderstanding what the Matlab path is. The Matlab path is where Matlab will look for functions. As a bonus you will also find normal files that way. You should not rely on that, especially not when writing a GUI.
The fullfile function can be used to create a complete file name including the path. That way you unambiguously refer to a specific file and the current folder and/or the Matlab path are irrelevant.
