This seems to have been fixed by jwe's recent work on the GUI. Update to a changeset >= to 16486:b1b8a963f095 to see the fix.

The thread mentions this problem on windows and on ubuntu 64 bit. I reproduced this on an ubuntu 64 bit, too.

Yes, I do have a 64-bit system. This isn't a Windows install, however, which the link was about. This is a very ordinary Kubuntu 10.04 install.

Rik, do you have a 64-bit system? I can reproduce this only on a 64-bit systems, not on 32-bit. This coincides with crashes on exit in 64-bit systems as reported in

The octave-workspace file is usually generated when Octave crashes unexpectedly. When using the GUI this file is always created even when Octave has exited normally.
