Confirmed. When I exit Octave I also get a little bit more about the error from gnuplot itself which has printed to stderr.

Using legend() in a quiver3() plot causes script execution to halt with the message

This only seems to happen with graphics_toolkit("gnuplot"). Toolkits "qt" and "fltk" seem to work fine. A program which displays the error is attached as "quiver3legend.m". The error occurs in Octave 4.2.2 and 4.4.0 for MS Windows, as well as in 4.4.0 for Cygwin, all when using gnuplot.
