I overhauled the two functions stft and synthesis and incorporated the patch here ( This will be a part of the 3.8 release due in a few weeks.

This one is not a proper mercurial changeset but the change is simple and seems correct to me.
No other m-file in octave is using synthesis so nothing is broken.

I checked using

grep -r --include=".m" synthesis\ \( .

Another story is the user's scripts. Maybe a note in NEWS can be added?

For rectangular windows the signal can be fully reconstructed even when the window size is equal to the increment.

But synthesis fails with an error (invalid row index = 0). To reproduce run:

max(abs(x2-x)) % validate expected result

The attached patch fixes the problem but also affects synthesis so that the resulting signal starts earlier. Ie. previously this was fine

max(abs(x2-x(28:987))) % validate expected result

But with the patch this has to be changed to

max(abs(x2-x(29:988))) % validate expected result
