Please use the bug tracker to post updates to a bug report.  The mailing list is intended as a read-only notification stream.  Info posted to this mailing list address won't appear in the tracker database where it is most useful.

Follow-up Comment #3, bug #32901 (project octave):

Well, I remember reading somewhere that every deviation from Matlab
behavior (besides extensions like #-comments, +=, etc..) is considered a bug
in Octave. So valid Matlab code should run in Octave as well.

Actually, the Octave philosophy is that we are not a clone of Matlab.  Rather,
we are open-source numerical computing software which is *generally*
compatible with Matlab, but we don't follow them slavishly where it doesn't
appear to make sense; 100% compatibility is not the goal of Octave.

Actually the full quote form the FAQ is

"... in general differences between the two are considered as bugs. Octave might consider that the bug is in Matlab and do nothing about it, but generally functionality is almost identical."

so Rik's opinion is the right one
