Follow-up Comment #9, bug #51436 (project octave):

Yeah, this is almost definitely due to the kernel bug affecting Java.

I have a Debian 32-bit unstable VM. I have installed the octave package from
the official repositories, linked with netlib BLAS and LAPACK, ATLAS and
OpenBLAS are not even installed.

Test command is simply: octave --eval 'javaObject("java.lang.Object");'

Under linux 4.11.6-1, which is the most recently packaged version in Debian,
there is no segfault.

Under linux 4.9.30-2, which is vulnerable to CVE-2017-1000364, there is no

Under linux 4.9.30-2+deb9u1, which contained the first fix attempt for
CVE-2017-1000364, Octave segfaults.

Under linux 4.9.30-2+deb9u2, which reverted the previous and added a new fix,
there is no segfault.

Please do confirm that you are able to run the test suite under a different
linux version.
