Octave version 3.2.4 is ancient and deprecated. If you can reproduce the problem with the current stable version of Octave (3.6.4) we can take a look.

on ubuntu 12.04 64 bit

./standalone prints out:
Hello Octave world!
Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-close.c: 759: _dl_close: Assertion `map->l_init_called' failed!

on macos 10.8.4 64bit is more worse:

standalone(2247) malloc: *** error for object 0x7fff77c46570: pointer being freed was not allocated

      • set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug

Abort trap: 6
