There are known issues with the Octave 5.2 GUI
in macos, these are hopefully fixed in the upcoming
6.1 release.

If you want to try it out you can check out a release

I have 5.2.0 in Mac OS Mojave, installed recently using MacPorts. For fun, because I saw the example in Wikipedia, I typed 'sombrero' and pressed enter.

The plot appeared. But after a few seconds, the interface starts showing the beachball and doesn't seem to recover at all. There is no CPU load at all.

This has been reproducible now three times out of four.
