Simple.  I checked in a change here (https://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/7c778a102de8).  The following test now works.

resp = webread ("www.octave.org");

The webread function docstring says it can be called with just one URL argument. However,

>> webread ('http://www.example.org/')
error: varargin(0): subscripts must be either integers 1 to (2^63)-1 or logicals
error: called from
    webread at line 51 column 3

This looks like it should be easy to fix with some nargin checks.
