Perhaps it is a bug. I just created user dummy with home directory "/"
I run myexit.m file that contains a single line

-bash-2.05b$ octave -qH /tumbleweed/dima/octave/myexit.m
error: Permission denied

If I do strace I get:

-bash-2.05b$  strace octave -qH /tumbleweed/dima/octave/myexit.m

read(3, "exit\n\n", 4096)               = 6
ioctl(0, SNDCTL_TMR_TIMEBASE or TCGETS, {B38400 opost isig icanon echo ...}) =

I'm calling Octave with the command 'octave -qH myfunction.m' so it
should't need to write to .octave-hist on exit.
