Yes, this is one of several known issues with Octave's GUI on macOS. Closing as a duplicate of bug #50025 and bug #50795. Please contribute by helping to debug or fix bug #50025.

Operating System: macOS Sierra 10.12.5

I installed Octave via Homebrew on an otherwise freshly installed macOS. When I start it via "octave" from bash and then attempt to exit it via the context menu or Cmd+Q, octave-gui freezes.

It then needs to be killed by closing the Terminal Window and using force quit on octave-gui.
