I think this bug and bug #50640 are the same thing. There is much more traffic on that bug report so I have marked this bug as a duplicate of that one.

The version 4.3.0+ simply means the development version listed as "dev" in the dropdown box for Release.

I wrote an arithmetics for octave in java.
This is wrapped in octave objects of class pn (polymorphic numbers)
E.g. pn(3.4) yields a number with value 3.4.
If i just write pn(3.4) (without ';'),
the result is ans=3.4.
Also if i write display (pn(3.4)) which is the same.
if i assign
i receive an error
error: Invalid call to display. Correct usage is:
display (a=pn(3.3))
-- Function File: display(NUM)

Strange enough,
display (a=pn(3.3)) is all ok.

I alsow would like to point out,
that the newest octave seems 4.3.0.+
whereas this version is not offered in this tracker.
Also, within that version much of it is still 4.2.1.
