frequent windows crashes, especially with plotting?

The reason for asking is that Octave 5.2.0 on windows crashes
frequently, especially when using plotting. During development it is
easily possible to request plots that go into a loop and hang. Ctrl-C
is ineffective at that point and the only solution is to use the task
manager to kill Octave and restart it.

This is actually a separate important issue.  I've been running Octave on Windows and very rarely suffer crashes like you describe.  I've edited the subject line to start a separate thread on the discussion. Could you provide feedback on the following:

- Can you summarize what you're doing that results in frequent crashes? Is it repeatable? 

- Are you ever getting an actual 'crash' that exits without your intervention, or is it always a program 'hang' where everything becomes unresponsive? 

- We've previously seen issues where windows plotting can take an inordinate amount of time.  Have you ever waited a long time to see if control returns? 

- Did you install Octave from the executable or one of the zip-packages? if teh latter did you follow the post-install instructions?
