The compatibility between matlab and octave becomes quite poor, when you
focuse on plotting. 
One reason is that gnuplot can't do all, what matlab can.
The other is, that most people don't focuse on it.

For several plotting things you can easily write your own
m-files, which do what you want (matlab does).
I have contributed a print.m some time ago.
If you look for clf.m it's not a problem.
Just write something like:
hold off
into the file clf.m

You are right if you think, this side should be improved (at least
according to me).
Maybe someone notes all incompatibilites in the plotting between matlab
and octave and we look all what kind of  m-files we have collect them 
and make them part of the distribution.
