Tue Mar 28 11:25:08 2017, original submission:

When simply typing 'exit' or 'quit' in the GUI, octave closes with:


panic: Aborted -- stopping myself...
attempting to save variables to 'octave-workspace'...
panic: attempted clean up failed -- aborting...
octave exited with signal 6
Steps to reproduce:
1 from a shell start: octave
2 type exit or quit in gui

This does not happen when the command line version is used. But it is somewhat annoying as it leaves (empty) octave-workspace files around.

I also reported it at Arch:

Additional info:

  • Archlinux package Octave version 4.2.1-4
  • coredump attached (possibly a race condition?)
