Do you have octave-forge installed? If not the rand/randn generators in octave itself are signifiantly slower and don't support the 'state' argument. So I'd suggest you install octave-forge even if you disable this line..

I just installed octave-forge's rand.oct to accompany Octave 2.1.71 and I can tell you that it works as Steve had hoped. The rand('state',0) command produces a row vector of 625 elements:

ans =

    1  625

The vector produced by rand('state',0) is the same every time I run it.
