I checked in a changeset to address using NaN as a base here (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/b02d5a4c7452).

Rather than explicitly call isnan() I changed the structure of the input validation tests.

-  elseif (base < 2 || base > length (symbols))
+  elseif (! (base >= 2 && base <= length (symbols)))

Because NaN never compares true to any number this elseif will now evaluate to ! 0 for a NaN and issue the necessary error message.

Marking as fixed and closing report.

Added a test also.
Patch attached.

>> base2dec('11',NaN)
Error using base2dec (line 24)
The base must be an integer value between 2 and 36.

But in Octave,

>> base2dec('11',NaN)
ans =  NaN

NaN is not-a-number so definitely it doesn't lie within 2-36 range.
So, Octave also should throw error like MATLAB.
