Sorry, this seems to be a consequence of my test of the getframe patch (file #37617) from bug #48195. Please close as invalid.

it seems to be related to a figure's position. Octave also freezes by simply creating a new figure (call to figure ()) and resizing the figure using the mouse.

I suddenly observe very frequent segfault when opening figures - I would say this is related to a change in dev over the last week or so.

At the moment, running this:

F    = figure(...
    'Position',[659 20 767 1105],...

results in this:

>> testfigure
>> panic: Segmentation fault -- stopping myself...
attempting to save variables to 'octave-workspace'...
save to 'octave-workspace' complete
Segmentation fault

or sometimes the figure becomes visible and unresponsive - Octave has to be killed.

It even seems that running something as simple as this:

figure('position',[659   200  767   421])

creates an unresponsive figure. If the 'position' property is not set up, it works as usual.
