I fixed this bug on the default branch

I couldn't add a test case, because parser errors cause the %!error tests to always fail.

Tested some more versions.

It also crashes on Windows (MSVC2010 & MinGW):

Could be provoked on Octave-3.4.3MinGW (one but oldest I have installed) as well, but in Octave MinGW-3.2.4:

...no crash occurs, so this is a regression.

(Status changed to "Confirmed", OS to "Any", Item Group to "Regression")
