Probably.  If you are interested, then why don't you volunteer to do

That is not a very useful bug report.  If you expect someone to be
able to fix problems that you encounter, you must help out by
submitting bug reports that contain enough information for someone to
be able to fix the bug.  If you are not sure what constitutes a
complete bug report, please read

I can't be sure, but I think this problem might be fixed in the
current CVS sources.

BTW, 2.1.x versions of Octave are development versions of Octave.
They generally work OK, but they are unstable in the sense that they
may contain serious bugs, and internal and external interfaces may
change dramatically and without notice.  If you use the 2.1.x versions
of Octave, consider yourself an Octave developer.  As such, it is
unreasonable to expect a lot of gratis hand-holding support.  Have you
read the file
