delay is a function from the OF package system-identification. It may have its own problem. Can you confirm that you get a crash without this function?

Does Windows give you any information about the crash or just some uninformative Windows message like "this program has performed an illegal operation"?

Which Octave build are you using?

In a "medium" for loop (1500) elements, I have a consistent crash of either Octave 3.6.1 or Octave GUI 0.8.8

Code 1 (with crash)
for i=1:1500
% do something

Code 2 (without crash)
for i = 1:50:1500
% do something

Run the "driver2.m" attached
