Thanks for the report. I can not reproduce the crash and would like to know some more details.

  • Have you changed the syntax highlighting for octave files?
  • Are files opened in the editor when the crash occurs?
  • Which columns are shown in the file browser?

In addition, could you please make the following tests?

Please look for the configuration file
and make a copy of this file. Then please remove the following entries and try again if the crash occurs after each removal:

  1. In section [filesdockwidget] the line beginning with "column_state"
  2. All entries in [filesdockwidget] starting with "show*"
  3. The complete section [filesdockwidget]

My octave start to working unusual after I modified some syntax highlighting color of editor.
When I open Octave GUI, its frame disappear, and will not become visible again until the right-bottom border of the window was clicked.
When I move mouse between different items on the file browser or scroll the mouse wheel on it, Octave stop responding and crash. The system monitor shows that the CPU and memory usage of Octave become   usually high.
