```Help!

I just don't understand this:

octave:79> sscanf('L02282     GGGAACTAGA ACGATTCGCA GTTAATCCTG
CCCTGTTAGA AACATCAGAA','%1s',1)
ans = L

octave:80> sscanf('L02282     GGGAACTAGA ACGATTCGCA GTTAATCCTG
CCCTGTTAGA AACATCAGAA','%2s',1)
ans = L

octave:81> sscanf('L02282     GGGAACTAGA ACGATTCGCA GTTAATCCTG
CCCTGTTAGA AACATCAGAA','%3s',1)
ans = L02282GGGAACTAGA ACGATTCGCAGTTAATCCTG CCCTGTTAGAAACATCAGAA5S

octave:82> sscanf('L02282     GGGAACTAGA ACGATTCGCA GTTAATCCTG
CCCTGTTAGA AACATCAGAA','%4s',1)
ans = L

octave:83> sscanf('L02282     GGGAACTAGA ACGATTCGCA GTTAATCCTG
CCCTGTTAGA AACATCAGAA','%5s',1)
ans = L02282    GGGAACTAGAACGATTCGCAGTTAATCCTGCCCTGTTAGAAACATCAGAA

octave:84> sscanf('L02282     GGGAACTAGA ACGATTCGCA GTTAATCCTG
CCCTGTTAGA AACATCAGAA','%6s',1)
ans = L02282GGGAACTAGA ACGATTCGCA GTTAATCCTG CCCTGTTAGA AACATCAGAA

octave:86> sscanf('L02282     GGGAACTAGA ACGATTCGCA GTTAATCCTG
CCCTGTTAGA AACATCAGAA','%7s',1)
ans = L02282 GGGAACTAGA ACGATTCGCAGTTAATCCTG address@hidden
t

octave:87> sscanf('L02282     GGGAACTAGA ACGATTCGCA GTTAATCCTG
CCCTGTTAGA AACATCAGAA','%8s',1)
ans = L

octave:88> version
ans = 2.0.14

Any ideas?
