Follow-up Comment #2, bug #44380 (project octave):

A while ago I posted in the help-octave list or in a  bug report about memory
limits; as I'm abroad w.limited web access (typing on an old tablet) I can't
search now. It was IIRC some 6-8 months ago.

 Your problem is memory fragmentation of the OS itself. I compared Matlab 32b
and Octave 32b on a 64bit Win7 w. 8 GB RAM, both could only create an array of
IIRC max. ~440 MB immediately after booting (i.e., as first user program).
Nothing to be done about it.
With an Octave build f.64 bits it could be better.

BTW you use an old Octave version (3.6.4); there are 64-bit indexing versions
of 3.8.2 f. Windows available. Search the wiki for the URL
