What version of Octave are you using.  On what platform?  How was it
compiled?  Precisely how are you calling the fread function?

If you think you have found a bug in Octave, then please submit a
complete bug report to the address@hidden list.  If you aren't sure
what to include in the report so that it is useful, then please read before sending your report.
