It's something within the parallel package, and it affects the optim
and database packages as well.

In my attempts to stay compatible with different ways of Octave
versions to handle errors, I somehow came to use, among others, a
function which directly writes to standard error. I just didn't think
of 'lasterror' and 'try/catch'...

I had never noticed the issue, but it was probably already present in
previous versions of the said packages, with Octave versions <5.1. Do
you think we should stop the pending releases of optim and database
until the issue is fixed?
