Without a test case, run in a supported version of Octave, this will be impossible to debug.

Octave 3.6.2 is "ancient".
I wouldn't be surprised if this issue has been fixed long time ago (it does ring a bell).

Can you upgrade to 3.8.x? There's a 3.8.2 "unofficial" binary installer online.

The log plots sometimes do not show the finer division tick marks (for example, between 10^0 and 10^1, values of 2, 3, 4, etc.) when I try to plot with the ax=axes; set(ax, 'Xscale', 'log'). The 'hold on' command can surprisingly take the tick marks away as well.

The grid on command is not successful with showing up on the finer tick marks, as they only appear for 1e0, 1e1, etc. - the main logarithmic divisions.

I also would prefer in lieu of the 1e+0 1e+2 etc. notation the 10^0 10^2 etc. notation.

Thanks for your consideration.
