Oops, I posted a link to the wrong patch.  The correct one is here:

This is a configuration and build problem, not a bug in the sources.  I checked in the following change so that files like LSODE-opts.cc are not compiled and linked as part of the liboctinterp library.


This seems to fix the problem for me, so I'm closing this report.

Options changed with lsode_options are printed correctly (in their changed form) when queried with lsode_options, but are seen as unchanged from their initialized value by liboctave/LSODE.cc, as is readily verified by stepping through this file with a debugger.

The reason seems to be that lsode_opts in src/LSODE-opts.cc is declared with storage class 'static' and thus has internal linkage, while the codes for lsode_options and lsode reside in different files (although in the latter LSODE-opts.cc is included).

Strangely, although this bug is apparent in tip, no such bug is apparent in Octave-3.2.4, although the code is the same. There seem to be some strange effects if dynamic linking is involved ... this might also lead to difficulties in reproducing this bug. Anyway, the attached small patch was tested to fix this.

(Although I only tested lsode, of corse the other integrators must also have been affected.)
