Changeset http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/7a0cf02ed6d5 fixes the issue for me. The feature of replacing all highlighted occurrences of a word by a new one was also affected.

I can confirm this issue ob Ubuntu and Windows. It only happens when tabulators are used fir indentation.

I found that sometimes double click doesn't work to highlight all as expected.

I can double click on any word above to activate highlight all except sometimes some of the variables in the for loop (a and ind) depending on how I click on them. For example, double clicking in the middle of 'a' or either 'ind' in the loop doesn't work, but clicking to the far left or right of any does (though double clicking to the far left seems to highlight the wrong portion of the text, but does do highlight all on the variable). I don't think this is an exclusive list of ways it fails, but is just an example.
