Somewhere in the past 2 years this has been fixed.  I verified the original example and the one in comment #2 on the development branch with a tip from 8/15/18.

Running a script with


correctly produces a traceback with 4.2.0-rc2:

error: a(2): out of bound 1
error: called from
    noLineInErrorMessage at line 2 column 1

wheras a script containing


does not:

error: wrong type argument 'scalar'
error: set: argument 0 must be a property name

Also bug #47605 may be related.  I haven't looked at it in detail, but I'm pretty sure that the problems were caused by this change that I made to fix another problem:  http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/909129eb77c5

I'll try to take a look at it soon.

It seems that bug 44862 has resurfaced in the current development version.

Executing testScript.m


gives in the stable version

%:~> /usr/local/octave/bin/octave-cli testScript.m
error: testScript.m: A(I): index out of bounds; value 2 out of bound 1
error: called from
    testScript.m at line 2 column 1

and in the dev version

%:~> /usr/local/octave-dev/bin/octave-cli testScript.m
error: a(2): out of bound 1
error: execution exception in testScript.m
