Follow-up Comment #6, bug #56600 (project octave):

To answer Mike, yes, the real bug/incompatibility is that "Octave's system
function does not return immediately when a command with an ampersand is
called and two return values are requested"

John, can you suggest how I might test for the questions you asked about

At the very least I know that Matlab launches the commands in a shell on
Linux, a shell with their screwed up environment variables in fact, which
sometimes screws up loading glibc. I actually wrote a wrapper for the matlab
system command which clears LD_LIBRARY_PATH and sources .bashrc again before
running the actual requested command to get around this problem. Perhaps this
gives some clues to what Matlab is doing?
