This problem has been fixed in the development version. The fix
will be available in the next major software release. Thank you
for your bug report.

The file clipper.mex generated by the geometry package should include the debugging symbols. It should be up to the user or to the maintainer of the distribution where the package will be included to strip those symbols.

This is the case, for instance, in the Debian distribution. The regular Debian package octave-geometry includes the stripped version of the clipper.mex file, while the octave-geometry-dgbsym package includes the non stripped version.

The patch attached to this bug report (which essentially replaces the "-s" option by the "-g" option to mkoctfile) fixes the problem.
