I execute this line in Octave (dev)...

close all; h_w_1=figure(1,'units','inches','position',[1,0,3,2]); h_a_1=axes('units','normalized','outerposition',[0, 0, 1, 1]); h_w_2=figure(2,'units','inches','position',[4.3,0,3,2*3]); h_a_2=axes('units','normalized','outerposition',[0, 0, 1, 1/3]); h_w_3=figure(3,'units','inches','position',[7.5,0,3,2*3]); h_a_3=axes('units','normalized','outerposition',[0, 0, 1, 1]);

... where three figures are created:
  - in first figure axes occupy all space of figure;
  - in second figure axes occupy only third space of figure, but height of
figure is tripled;
  - in third figure axes occupy all space of figure which height is

  As result I got three windows (see attached screenshot).
  In middle window (Figure 2) I expected (and I think that should be a
correct result) that size of axes should be same as in left window (Figure
1), but instead axes are shrunk vertically.
