I applied your patch here (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/868dcab453bd). Thanks for taking care of this. Closing report.

Ok sorry Rik. With this modified protocol, I can reproduce the bug.

The problem is that when the main axes has its limits currently updated, a static recursion variable prevents the colorbar axes from being also updated.

I attached a patch.

The problem is still there. I've re-written the example so that the problem is evident.

I added the instructions to colorbar.m

I can't reproduce this bug. The proposed test doesn't trigger the listener (update_colorbar_clim) in which the keyboard command is set; so I tried the following:

See the FIXME note in colorbar.m in subfunction update_colorbar_clim.

The result is that the axis is scaled to half its original value. Instead, the axis should keep its size and the axis tick labels should change.
