I just upgraded to 2.0.13 and I get frequent floating point exceptions. I can
get one anytime I issue the following three commands just after startup
Octave, version 2.0.13 (alphaev56-dec-osf4.0d).

octave:2> x = randn(100,1);
octave:3> y = randn(100,1);
error: floating point exception -- trying to return to prompt
Changing arguments to randn doesn't change anything. This is not the only time
I get such exceptions but this is the only way I can get them predictably.
I suspect this is only a problem with DEC machines but can anyone verify this?
