Follow-up Comment #9, bug #41665 (project octave):

Out of habit and due to the experimental state of the GUI
I always use octave --no-gui.  I have seen no evidence that 
this does not work correctly even if there is no graphics
display (no DISPLAY set in the environment, or equivalent).
Of course, if the is no DISPLAY, I cannot generate plots.

I believe that --cli would do the same for me. If this is
true the difference between --cli and --no-gui has something
that I do not understand about qt. Why can this not be dealt
with at runtime?  This would avoid the need for 2 command 
line options which have to be explained to users.

I will take a look in the Manual for the current explanation
and see if I can understand it.
