Emacs freezes after M-x run-octave when it gets (apparently) just past

This works. Once I am in octave with the >> prompt, argv gives exactly

I tried (debug-on-entry inferior-octave), but I guess there is something 
I do not quite understand about when a form can be debugged since I get 
(void-variable inferior-octave) even when I have the octave session

I am starting to run short on time on several commitments so appreciate
pointers I would otherwise have dug up the right way myself.
