Bug when running Octave 4.02 under emulation on OS X 10.11.5.

Hi guys, I have a user who is using my Vagrant VM on MacBook Pro with OS X 10.11.5.  and the plot command is causing his Octave to hang.

 My applet downloads 4.02 and runs as it is supposed to, and he gets the Octave GUI so the emulator is running well, Octave is up and talking to X on the Mac host, and then apparently as soon as he calls plot() ...

Any ideas? Maybe some graphics components were forgotten in the "stable" 4.02 binary in the Ubuntu repository? I got him to do the obvious but it doesn't help:

I've installed the latest XQuartz and executed the command in Octave:

setenv("GNUTERM", "X11")

followed by


(and of course Octave displays "1 2 3 4 5" on a new line)
and then I type


As soon as I press the return key after the closing parenthesis of plot(y), the entire Octave window disappears.  
I restarted Octave and typed the instruction 
setenv("GNUTERM", "qt")
and the result is the same, the Octave window immediately disappears.
