Follow-up Comment #18, bug #39257 (project octave):

thanks for working on this. I tested this and got an error on the example in
comment #11. running the function testnested works, also a function handle is
returned correctly, yet calling the returned handle gives an error:

octave:2> y = testnested;
octave:3> y()
error: 'y' undefined near line 7 column 8
error: called from
    testnested>nested at line 7 column 3

It seems the variable "a" in the enclosing (closure generating) function went
out of scope and is destroyed(?). As far as I understand it Matlab stores a
copy of the closure generating function's "workspace" to prevent this until
all references to the handle are deleted.
