Note that octave workshop is based on a 2.9.3 CVS build of octave with
MingW, and so both old and experimental. The problem you are seeing
above is known, but no solution is known to fix it. It is believed the
issue is with the mingw c++ std::string class where the strings are
being corrupted somehow.... This is a really difficult bug to track down

At this point as workshop development has paused, the best octave 2.9.9
windows build is the one from Michael Goffioul, using MSVC and on my
home website at

However, again this is a recent CVS of octave and so if you use this
consider yourself a developer.. I believe that with a 2.9.10 release of
octave we should have a reasonable binary for windows available..
