I fixed this segfault by checking that the desired new parent handle is not the same as that of the object itself (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/82b1778798d3).

For reference, I tried the same command in Matlab.

set (gcf (), 'parent', gcf ())
Error using set
Bad property value found.
Object Name :  figure
Property Name :  'Parent'.

The command below seg-faults for me on MacOS X

set (gcf, "parent", gcf)
