Prevent MATLAB from adding \Documents\MATLAB to the top of the search path

I have my default current directory set to something other than the default "\Documents\MATLAB" by specifying the directory of my choice in the Windows shortcut used to load MATLAB - no problem. However, even though the directory is never used anymore, MATLAB insists on always adding "\Documents\MATLAB" to the top of the search path every time it starts. How to I prevent this? I'm using R2007b.

Put
rmpath('\Documents\MATLAB')
in startup.m. You may need to use 'C:\Documents\MATLAB'; I don't have a Windows environment to test it on.
