I believe there are a few other packages on octave forge that exhibit the same behaviour.

We could update this bug to be specifically about the continuation marker deprecation warning appearing more than once. Or we could just close it as resolved, since the current bundle of OF packages with mxe-octave don't show this warning now.

I see the same. FWIW these warnings will probably go away once MXE is updated to use the latest optim package release.

Some warnings only warn once and some warn for every instance. The logic is in each function to decide if it should be shown once or every time.

After installing an mxe-built Octave-3.8.0 on Windows 7 and then having run "build_packages" in <OCTAVE_HOME>/src (but that is all irrelevant I think), upon next start of Octave I get an enormously long series of warning errors:

:
<scrolled out of terminal buffer>
:
warning: using continuation marker \ outside of double quoted strings is deprecated and will be removed in a future version of Octave; near line 917 of file 'D:\Octave\Octave-3.8.0\share\octave\packages\optim-1.2.2\nonlin_min.m'

warning: using continuation marker \ outside of double quoted strings is deprecated and will be removed in a future version of Octave; near line 918 of file 'D:\Octave\Octave-3.8.0\share\octave\packages\optim-1.2.2\nonlin_min.m'
:
<seemingly endless row of similar warnings snipped>
:
warning: using continuation marker \ outside of double quoted strings is deprecated and will be removed in a future version of Octave; near line 1385 of file 'D:\Octave\Octave-3.8.0\share\octave\packages\optim-1.2.2\nonlin_min.m'
>>

Of course, just one of those warnings would do; instead I could count maybe a hundred while still much more were scrolled out of the terminal buffer.
That (= similar warnings repeated) is the actual bug I'd like to report.

AFAIK normally such warnings are issued just once (one example where it works OK is "java_get is deprecated..." when I run test scripts in the io package; that warning is shown just once while java_get is called many times).

However, apparently loading OF packages is special in allowing similar warnings to be repeated over and over again.
