Thank you. That has fixed it for me.

I pushed an additional change with a BIST here to help avoid accidental regressions in the future:

Closing as fixed.

The limits are chosen in axes::properties::calc_ticks_and_lims as follows:

tick_sep = calc_tick_sep (lo, hi);
double i1 = std::floor (lo / tick_sep);
double i2 = std::ceil (hi / tick_sep);

so I am confident there cannot be more than one tick neither before the first data point nor after the last one.

I pushed the patch to stable (since this is a regression) here:

Is it ever possible that more than one tick would need to be removed from each side? (I can't currently think of a case where that would be necessary.)

If there are no such cases, your change looks good to me.

I can confirm the issue. I attached a patch that fixes the regression for me.

On Octave 8.0.1 (hg ID 9f4637377e33), one gets the following:

octave:1> plot(1:201)
octave:2> axis tight
octave:3> get(gca, 'XTick')
ans =

     0    50   100   150   200   250

Note that "XTick" still includes 0 and 250 (despite the fact that the plot window is correctly updated, i.e. its X-axis goes from 1 to 201).

This is a regression since on Octave 7.3.0 (and MATLAB R2022b), one gets:

octave:3> get(gca, 'XTick')
ans =

    50   100   150   200
