I checked in a more complicated fix for the remaining issue (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/cd5a6008ae72).  Closing report.

I checked in a partial fix (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/82b1778798d3) which avoids setting the parent object to be the object itself.  Thus,

set(gca, "parent", gca);

no longer causes a segfault.

However, there is still a problem with the hggroup example.  I've re-titled the bug to reflect that.

It doesn't seem to be recursive, but it is. It's the same problem.

note that this also creates a segfault:

hg = hggroup;
set(gca, "parent", hg);

and it does not seem to be recursive.

Hah! Looks like this makes base_properties::mark_modified call itself recursively forever.

The issue with the gcf calling form seems unrelated. Please file a separate report for that.

Thanks, I like killing segfaults. I'll investigate this problem.

The following segfaults octave.

set(gca, "parent", gca);

This may not be the wisest thing to do, but interestingly, when for some figure I repeatedly do

set(gca, "parent", gcf);

the figure keeps changing, which is not what I would expect.
