Thank you Kai. I think that is the problem. I am using kde like the bug
On you request I found that the problem only occurs the first time. After that
long delay (~ 2 minutes waiting) any later calls to save shows the file dialog
FWIW I found another gotcha. When changing the preferences the way you
suggested, and just that knob, pressing Enter turns the command window fonts
into a gibberish look because in my case the proposed font for the Command
Window is CCIcons (?!). That was surprising. :-)
This is indeed pretty weird. Does this also happen, if you freshly restart Octave? Do you have any specific language settings for you KDE (fonts, ...) ? Does this now always happen for each fresh Octave session, that you only see "gibberish" fonts?
