Follow-up Comment #14, bug #49214 (project octave):

If I use File Explorer to change .octave_hist to hidden, and then start
octave-cli.exe from a cmd.exe window I get the following error on leaving

error: writing file 'C:\Documents and Settings\Rik\My
Documents\Linux\home\rik\.octave_hist': Permission denied
error: ignoring const octave::execution_exception& while preparing to exit

I used the function history_file() to change the name of the file to something
without a leading '.' character, but I get the same error message if the new
file has the hidden attribute.

On the other hand, directly writing the history file with

history -w

works just fine in an Octave session.  So it may be something special about
the shutdown procedure for Octave.
