Do you mean workaround -i --line-editing for octave 3.6 and 3.8?
For octave 4. the issue is solved and it is not related to the issue on this time, I think.


Those who have and haven't experienced issues, what version of the Octave installer are you using?  32bit, 64bit, cygwin, MINGW, exe or zip installer? anyone for whom a fresh install did not fix the problem? Just wondering if there is any consistent issue.
