One should be able to narrow this down by using the source control diff 
utilities of the repository.  Mercurial's standard front end server 
browser isn't geared for this, but it is possible to advance backward 
through the parents of a file and do diffs...at least those two features 
exist, but perhaps not conveniently combined.  The constructor is in :

[sebald@ octave]$ grep SparseMatrix::SparseMatrix * -r
[snip the ChangeLog entries]
liboctave/array/dSparse.cc:SparseMatrix::SparseMatrix (const 
SparseBoolMatrix &a)
liboctave/array/dSparse.cc:SparseMatrix::SparseMatrix (const DiagMatrix& a)

and here is that source file in the repository:


Click on the "diff" link and click on the "parents" link in various ways 
and I believed you'll be able to trace the recent history of dSparse.cc 
with just the differences.  There probably is a way to do this at the 
command line on the repository on your computer, but at least the HTML 
version looks a little better if perhaps more clumsy.



If you think the problem is dSparse.cc you can simply ask Mercurial for the log of that particular file.

cd liboctave/array
hg log dSparse.cc

The log ends there because those are the changes only for the exact file liboctave/array/dSparse.cc.  It existed as a file, but in a different location, before changeset 15271.  To see the entire history of the file you can add '--follow' to the 'hg log' command and Mercurial will give you the history through all renamings and moves.
