Thank you for the report. Could you please provide a little more details, e.g.:

  • Is only the color of the dock-widget's title bar is affected or also other preferences, maybe all?
  • Is the whole qt-settings file overwritten
  • If yes, by an older version or by the initial one?
  • Do you see the welcome wizard at each start of octave?
