@Marco: I pushed your cset here: http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/27d68d7a482c.

I ran the tests for tfqmr in a loop 1,000 times and saw no failures after this cset.

It is not clear to me what was the purpose of such a test. In the attached patch I removed the randomness and tested the Jacobi preconditioner.

this is likely the same issue as bug #53258

the test is checking the error but the actual
convergence check is probably on the residual.

cristiano, can you confirm this?

Test #4 in the newly added function file tfqmr.m fails on its random input about 5% of the time (about 4-6 times out of 100).


The largest absolute error I have seen so far is 1.6043e-07 out of a few thousand trials.
