Version 2.0.5 is ancient.  You should probably upgrade to 2.0.13,
which was released last week.  The newer release includes many bug
fixes and improvements over 2.0.5.  It will also produce a core file
if it happens to crash (subject to an resource limits, of course).  If
that doesn't help, you can always run Octave under the debugger.
