Even without the more comprehensive fix, there is no need for Octave to segfault just because an extra 6th argument was passed to find.  I corrected that problem alone on the stable branch here (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/f819397c0bc1).  Closing this report, but leaving bug #42425 open.

This and bug 42425 are both fixed by calling find with a comprehensive dispatch function that handles all the types in the same way.  Here's my patch (18794 at https://dspyz@bitbucket.org/dspyz/octave on top of 18791-18793 in my previous two bugfixes).

Exactly what it says on the tin:

octave:1> [a,b,c,d,e,f] = find(speye(3));
panic: impossible state reached in file 'corefcn/find.cc' at line 221
panic: Aborted -- stopping myself...
attempting to save variables to 'octave-workspace'...
save to 'octave-workspace' complete
octave exited with signal 6
