I understand, closing this bug report as a duplicate. The bug fix list you point to is a wiki, you are as free to make changes to it as anyone :)

Also be aware that Octave has crashed on Windows with the "clear all" command for many, many releases now as I understand it, this is definitely not a new problem with 4.0.

the title of bug 41699 is
"imread causes a segmentation fault when exiting Octave", well,
it does not look so severe, so in http://wiki.octave.org/Bug_Fix_List_-_4.0_Release it is marked as:
"It would be nice to fix these, but they don't require resolution before the release.", but if it crashes every "clear all" after "imread", then this is really a show stopper for version 4.0.

Thanks for your bug report and for trying to help make the 4.0 release better.

Can you explain why you think this is not a duplicate of bug #41699? That bug report says "imread followed by clear all causes a segmentation fault". That is what you are reporting here also. What is not duplicated?

I agree about raising the severity of the original bug, but it can only be fixed for 4.0 if we have motivated people who can help find the cause in Windows and come up with a suitable fix.

imread ('file.jpg')
clear all

cause Octave to crash under windows.
This is a severe variant (but not duplicant) of bug 416699.

I have opened a new bug for two reasons:

1. This bug should have severity of 4 (and not 3).
2. It should be fixed in version 4.0.
