If I start Octave via cmdshell.bat and "octave --no-gui" my inputs are not detected properly by octave.

For example if I type in "exit" I get:
"error: 'eit' undefined near line 1 column 1"

It seems that octave simply ignores some characters in the input.
(can be clearly seen in the pictures I will attach)

There are inputs which octave never gets right e.g. "exit" and "x=1".
Other inputs are somtimes interpreted right an sometimes not e.g. "1+3" or "ans".

The last version I used octave without its gui without this problems was 4.0.3.
I tried working and found those errors in the 64bit and 32bit version of octave 4.2.0 and 4.2.1.

I work on Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise.
I downloaded all versions of octave I used as a .zip file from:
