This is a known bug.  Octave tries to compute approximately 4-7 divisions for automatic tick marks.  That calculation is done based on the xlimits of the plot.  Once those are calculated Octave just puts them on the graph, regardless of whether they fit.  You can see the same thing without subplot simply by changing the fontsize.

plot (1:1e6);
set (gca, "fontsize", 40);

There might already be a bug reported about this, I'm not sure.  I've re-titled the report since it is not specific to subplots.
