When Octave's error() function is called with an error message that ends in a newline, the backtrace from the interpreter is suppressed.  It would be nice to have consistency with the mex interface so that a mex function error message that ends in a newline also suppresses the backtrace in the interpreter.

I've attached a test case.  See the README file on how to invoke it.
