just to add I see the same thing periodically using Octave 6.2.1, usually just a few characters at the start of the first line text copied from the command window.

I unchecked "UTF-8" because the Octave editor does not like it : it issued a warning upon opening a file for edit.

I changed the system setting to UTF-8

Here is a copy from the command window upon start:

There is a funny foreign character in the clipboard, but it is not showing up on the Octave GUI display.

When copying command window selected text to the windows buffer, unexpected foreign characters are copied.
 The characters appear before the ASCII text "GNU Octave, version 6.2.0"
