In absence of answer, I think this report can be closed. Anyway, it is incorrectly tagged as a Segfault (it is nowhere mentioned that Octave crashes) so I removed it from the bugfix list.

Does this issue still occur with recent Octave releases?

I am running Ubuntu 16.04.1 on a Lenovo X120e laptop with AMD Fusion™ Processor E-350 and dual-core and 4GB memory.  I installed Octave 4.0.2 via the Ubuntu ppa.  I also installed octave-strings.  The command window prompt seems to work on initial and reboot, but if I exit and restart Octave, there will be no text output to the Command Window screen.  I had this problem with Octave 3.8 if I remember correctly.  Command line interface runs smoothly as far as I can tell.
