I don't think this is a GUI bug. And it seems like the issue right now is only about offering to reload octave-workspace if it's found.

hum, Octave does save the workspace:

so upon restart, ideally it'd acknowledge the crash and inform about the possibility of loading the octave-workspace file.

plus save the user's workspace if at all possible

I presume a decent crash handler will tell the file name and line number last ran?

Having only a stack trace doesn't allow me to debug anything. I nearly always need to have an example that allows me to reproduce the problem.
