Does the attached patch fix the problem for you?

Possibly this is a return of bug #49609 and bug #53536

If started from the Xfce menu (Debian 11), pressing Ctrl-C in the command window immediately crashes Octave and the whole desktop session is terminated.

Nothing happens, when Octave was started from inside a terminal session, so it is difficult to get any error messages...
