Can you provide a qt-settings file where it is working and one when it is not so that we can the differences ?

Octave 4.2.1 on my Windows 10 system crashes when I [snap]( https://www.techrepublic.com/article/snap-a-truly-slick-feature-in-windows-10) its window to the right side of the second monitor which is on the right of the main monitor. Snapping to the left side on the main monitor works fine.

It crashes with the following error:
Unhandled exception at 0x00007FFDF097775F (ntdll.dll) in octave-gui.exe: 0xC0000374: A heap has been corrupted (parameters: 0x00007FFDF09D86B0).

Once, snapping the window to the right worked. I then exited Octave GUI when paused in debugging. After that I could not reopen Octave GUI without it crashing.

I was able to work around it and get Octave GUI running again on my system by deleting two of Octave's temp files (username was my user name):

This issue is similar to bug #41953: GUI Crash on Startup.
