Seems to have been fixed with changes to MXE, rather than to Octave. This should be part of the next bug fix release.

Ive been able to duplicate the issue before, hwoever using a new compile of mxe at commit https://hg.octave.org/mxe-octave/rev/5049ab5e66f6 and it doesn't seem to be pasting the extra junk.

Windows 10 1709 (64bit)
Octave 5.1.0 Win64 build
https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/octave/windows/octave-5.1.0-w64-installer.exe
GUI

Steps to reproduce

1) type something into the command window (more than just "clc")
2) RMB "select all"
3) RMB "copy"
4) Switch to e.g. Notepad++, paste

After the last caret and line feed (0x3E 0x3E 0x0D 0x0A), there will be either

  • three spurious and varying characters that will display as garbage
  • three spurious and varying characters that will display as garbage + additional line feed (0x0D 0x0A)
  • nothing wrong (as it should be)
