Closing this report as invalid, looks like operator error.

Using the octave in the dist directory, such characters does not appear. Sorry for the noise,

This is a xterm control sequence [1]. So this may be related to your TERM environment variable.

At the start up invalid characters appeared using octave 3.8.1 on windows by mxe build using native build.

The compiler used is gcc-4.9.0 (32bit) (rev. 2) from MinGW w64 project. The thread model is win32 and dwarf exception is used.

The start up screen is :

The characters '←[?1034h' always appear.
