I ran in trouble once by having an iterative process repeatedly update
a plot window and it filled the /tmp directory with hundreds of
thousands of temp files. This didn't really slow down Octave (I didn't
see any evidence of memory leaks), but it handicapped my system even
after Octave finished: it turns out that a lot of programs would do a
directory of /tmp upon starting, and this took literally minutes;
deleting the files took most of an afternoon, because I didn't want to
just unlink /tmp.

Now that Octave-Gnuplot connection uses pipes it should not be a
problem any more, hopefully.
