This was re-fixed on the stable branch in this changeset (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/9c2ff2361864).  Closing report.

This bug was fixed, but the change was undone to fix bug #40256.  It looks like something better needs to be done so that both this bug and #40256 remain fixed at the same time.  I'm re-opening both bug reports and cross-referencing them.

The problem is not fixed when using gnuplot graphics backend. Verified with octave-3.8.1-rc4

Usually I would bugfix only serious errors on stable, i.e., where Octave gets incorrect mathematical results or segfaults.  This is a minor display issue (pun intended).  I looked at the changeset that fixes the issue though and it is very small indeed and unlikely to cause a problem so if you would like to go ahead and graft it on to stable that would be fine with me.

Rik, Should the fix to default be grafted to stable?

Happily this has already been fixed, but on the development branch.  You can get the fix either by building from Mercurial sources or waiting for the next major release of Octave.  The impending minor release on the stable branch (3.6.4) does not include this fix.  It needs to be the development code.

When I set custom yticklabel on a semilogy plot, the plot loses the minor ticks, even though it says they are still on.  See below.

I am using gnuplot, but FLTK seems to work.

semilogy(1:1000, rand(1000,1)*1000, 'o')
## look at the graph and see the minor ticks
set(gca, 'yticklabel', {'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e'})
## now look at the graph and see no minor ticks
get(gca, 'yminortick')

Compiled via ports, if that matters
