Seems like the root issue is why, occasionally, the qt-settings file gets overly large or overly small values in it.  I don't know how to address that.  However, for this specific bug report the answer is to reset the qt-settings section for [filesdockwidget] as Torsten suggests.

Stuart, thanks for the report. I had a similar issue recently and was able to solve it by removing the entry "column_state" in the section "[filesdockwidget]" of the settings file. You can find the settings file at "$HOME/.config/octave/qt-settings".

Unfortunately, I was not able to reproduce the error or to find the cause for the obviously compromising entry value.

Manjaro 17.0 XFCE with Octave 4.4.1

See image, issue persists when unpinned.

Can be worked around by running as root.

I'm using Manjaro's Vertex-Maia theme with Mint-x icons.

Changing the icon theme doesn't update the icons in the file browser, so maybe it's a caching issue?

Is there a log I can find for you?
