What you see is probably the phase jumping from -180 to 180 or visa
versa. There is no difference between a phase angle of alpha and
alpha+360, so it plots everything in a comfy range on your screen. It
also at a glance shows you where possible stability snags might be in a
feedback loop.
Not an error.
Unfortunately, in the examples brought out, the phase jumps from X to
X+180, as you can check by replotting the recalculated phase:
[mag,phase,w]= bode(tf2sys([1],[1,1,1,1]));
plot(phase)
phase(phase<0)+=180
plot(phase)
I don't know enough about the bode analysis to say whether such phase
reversal has physical consequence or not (if it does, then either
Octave or Matlab is giving a wrong result; if it doesn't then it is
just a matter of presenting the result, just like in the case of a phase
shift by 360 degrees).
