Yay.  This two year old bug seems to have been fixed with the move to exceptions in the core and this cset (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/05b86b044995).  Marking as fixed and closing report.

The following sample code is based on legend.m from Mercurial id 55680de6a897.  In any case, the breakpoint should be set at the first line of updatelegendtext.  The code needs to be entered on the command line, not in an m-file, in order to see the bug.

plot (1:10);
hl = legend ("abc");
dbstop ("legend", 1018);
set (hl, "interpreter", "latex");
## Now execute dbquit from the debug> prompt
