If there's anybody else seeing this problem, could they please try out the patch and continue this discussion?

The change makes sense to me, but I'd rather not push it without a user's confirmation.

It does not seem to work, sorry.  I launch a long-running command in the

Did you start with 'emacs -Q'? Or do you have e.g. company-mode enabled?

I did not restart emacs for testing, I just evaluated the patched
octave.el.  Is that alright?


Does it makes sense at all to use the same process for interaction and
for asking help?  Wouldn't it be simpler and more robust if a dedicated
octave process was started for eldoc?

No simpler, no. It's certainly easier to leave starting the process up to the user. Especially when projects and user code are involved.
