I pushed your change to the stable branch here: http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/a8a4b6e6e754.

I modified the commit message to include the bug number in the summary.

As reported in the maintainers mailing list

svd(single(randn(30,50) + i*randn(30,50)))

crashes octave. The problem is with the dimension of lrwork. As written here




LAPACK <= 3.6 (which is not so old) has a bug and requires lrwork = 7*min_mn.
The attached changeset fixes the problem for me.
