I don't think this error is related to octave version - I can provoke it
even on octave 2.0 :(

It's not fully deterministic (failure rate can bee only few % or near 100%)
and it depend (???) on compiler / c++ library version and machine speed and
load. Simple - fifos and pipes arent full-prof in octave :(

One of many threads about this problem (not solved) you can see here:
