I just noticed this bug is exactly the same as bug #37795. There is more discussion on that bug report, so I'm going to close this one as a duplicate of that one even though this was reported much earlier.

This bug is confirmed on a recent dev tip (2010-10-31). 

The plot window is essentially "dead" -- no button clicks work, re-sizing the window changes nothing, etc.

I have changed the priority to low, as this has an easy workaround of not using the --no-line-editing option or switching to the gnuplot backend.

If I understand the problem, I think this happens because unless readline is used, events are not processed when Octave is waiting for input.

I noticed that figure window does not close correctly in the fltk backended octave launched with "--no-line-editing" option. Noting is happend, when I click [X] button directly.

The gnuplot backended octave launched with "--no-line-editing" option have no such a problem.

I think this problem is involved in octave-mode of emacs. In the octave-mode of emacs, "--no-line-editing" option is used internally, so the same thing happens.
