Follow-up Comment #3, bug #55919 (project octave):

I have this same problem, and it's worse when printing matrices with many
columns. Try this:

x = dec2base(0:255,4,4)-'0')'
format short g

In normal mode, on my display, it correctly gives Columns 1 through 47, 48
through 94 ... 236 to 256 and the matrix has 4 rows.

In "g" mode, it erroneously gives Columns 1 through 94, 95 through 188, 189
through 256, but the display can accommodate only 47 numbers per row with
spaces, so each *line* of the matrix spills over to 2 lines of unequal length,
and the display is a mess.

The calculation of the width of each element in "g" mode forgets to add the
space between elements, and tries to pack too many elements per line.
