Thanks for your bug report. This bug has actually already been reported and is being tracked both in Debian and upstream. See Debian bug #675509 and upstream bug #37795. Closing as a duplicate of the latter.

I'm using Debian Jessie and GNU Octave, version 3.8.1

If I run octave with the --no-line-editing switch on, to avoid using readline

    $ octave --no-line-editing

and execute this command,

    >> t=0:1; plot(t);

then the plot window hangs. Without the line editing switch it's ok.

This is vexing because it's how octave is run under emacs.
