No further information from the OP after a few months, closing as works for me. If someone can reproduce and provide the needed information, this can be reopened.

Sorry, how stupid of me, you already indicated your operating system and Octave version. But please still provide the information the testscript would display, and the information on at which command the crash happens. The version of your info program is probably important. I don't know what on Windows is a 'normal terminal', though.

I can't reproduce this, you'd need to provide more information. E.g. you can run the attached testscript (after you have checked that it doesn't contain malicious commands) by copying it into your current directory and typing 'infotest' from the Octave command window.

The script prints information by and by and pauses after each item until a key is pressed. At some point, the crash may happen. You should report the information displayed up to then.

If the crash should prevent displaying the version of your info program, you can type the displayed name of your info program in a normal terminal with the option '--version', e.g. 'info --version', and report this result, too.

Don't forget to tell us your operating system and how you installed Octave.

pkg load optim
seems to crash the Command window of the GUI.
