Fixed in this changeset (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/b4b8e525dee0).  To access the fix you will need to build from the Mercurial sources or wait for the 3.6.0 release scheduled for December 2011.

Confirmed with hg tip 12507:41d183070c04.  This is an odd result, but I'm going to lower the priority for fixing since it doesn't seem to produce serious problems like a segfault.

when using debug_on_error it newplot stop with error with no message. In many cases things will work ok if  debug_on_error(false). This error also give false error if any thing in a try/catch statement involve plotting.
