Octave-mode tabs comment characters to column 32

Dear Kurt (and other octave-mode developers):

Whenever I use octave mode, if I type either a '%' or
a '#', as soon as I hit the spacebar, the comment
character gets automagically tabbed to column 32 of
that line.

I am using the versions of octave mode that come with
octave 2.1.71.  I had to download the source tarfile
for octave and then extract and install octave-hlp.el,
octave-inf.el, and octave-mod.el by hand in my
/etc/emacs/site-start.d directory.  This is because
Mandriva's stock octave rpm (octave-2.1.64-2mdk) only
ships with octave.el, and Mandriva's stock xemacs rpm
(xemacs-21.4.17-2mdk) does not seem to ship with any
octave*.el files at all.
