kolmogorov-Smirnov once again

I seem to have a problem with the kolmogorov smirnov test (both the one sample and two sample test). As nobody else have posted any problems with this by now old routine, I guess it is a local problem and not a bug in Octave. That is why I am posting my question to this list.

I use Fedora Core 2 with the latest updates. Octave is version 2.1.50 (i686-pc-linux-gnu). If I for instance submit this in Octave (ng is a vector of data, m_ng is the mean and v_ng the variance of the data all defined):

[pval_ng, ks_ng] = kolmogorov_smirnov_test(ng, "normal", m_ng, v_ng)

I get the following output (the line is in line 93 of my program as you can see):

error: octave_base_value::char_matrix_value(): wrong type argument `function handle'
error: evaluating argument list element number 1
error: evaluating argument list element number 1
error: evaluating assignment expression near line 81, column 7
error: evaluating if command near line 69, column 3
error: called from `kolmogorov_smirnov_test' in file `/usr/share/octave/2.1.50/m/statistics/tests/kolmogorov_smirnov_test.m'
error: near line 93 of file `/home/tr/data/p_stat.m'

I have earlier used the routine without problems. But that was on a RedHat system before they changed it into the Fedora project. I realize that it refers to the kolmogorov smirnov file in the /usr/share/octave/2.1.50/m/statistics/tests/ directory. I have been looking at this file. But I see no errors in the lines referred to. And I would be surprised if the error was there. Did anybody else have a similar problem? I would be greatful for any ideas of how to get by this problem.
