This has been fixed on the development branch in this changeset (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/fc43c8017e9b).  It will be a part of the 4.2 release, or the reporter can build from Mercurial sources to see the fix sooner.

In my case it is a problem because i need overload the 'keyboard' function using an user defined function with the same name.

This bug is confirmed, but I'm lowering the priority since there is an obvious workaround of not using builtin() with the keyboard() function.  This  shouldn't be a problem since coders can choose to use a function name other than 'keyboard' and thus avoid overloading the name and requiring the use of builtin().

octave:1> builtin ("keyboard");

The above code should show the "debug> " prompt, and is not the case
