Paging the original author.

Leo, are you still using Octave? What do you think about the issue?

Recipe to reproduce the bug:
1) emacs -Q
2) M-x run-octave
3) Type something that doesn't involve a octave function call, like the
following matrix. Type it slowly, to give octave-eldoc-function time to run:
A = [10 1;2 3]

(Of course, if you don't want to type slowly, set eldoc-idle-delay to 0).

4) When point is past a whitespace, such as in:
A |=
(with | being where point is)
the echo area displays: 'A' not found
Similar situation when point is at:
A = [10 |1;2 3]
Echo area here displays: '10' not found.

So, for every symbol that is not a function, 'not found' might be
displayed.  I think it is a bug, since as a a user I would expect that
if I'm not about to call a function, ElDoc shouldn't be displaying
