wierd error

I just upgraded to 2.0.13 and I get frequent floating point exceptions.  I can 
get one anytime I issue the following three commands just after startup

Octave, version 2.0.13 (alphaev56-dec-osf4.0d).

octave:1> multiplot(2,2)
octave:2> x = randn(100,1);
octave:3> y = randn(100,1);
error: floating point exception -- trying to return to prompt


Changing arguments to randn doesn't change anything.  This is not the only time 
I get such exceptions but this is the only way I can get them predictably.

I suspect this is only a problem with DEC machines but can anyone verify this?
