Follow-up Comment #5:

The particular code points is very revealing I think. I believe this may be
due to some keyboard layout setting in your desktop environment and not
anything that Octave's GUI is doing itself.

The code point 0xB4 is the character <´> (ACUTE ACCENT) and 0xA8 is the
character <¨> (DIARESIS). With my keyboard layout, I can generate these by
holding down the right Alt key and double pressing single quote or double

Is it possible that your preferred keyboard layout and desktop settings are
doing something to generate these symbols and input them into Octave? What are
your desktop environment and keyboard layout? Do you get those symbols in a
different desktop graphical editor?
