If you compiled Octave yourself you can start it using the script "run-octave" 
which is in the top level of the source tree.
if you pass the option '-g' to 'run-octave' it will start the program in a 
debugger.
When octace crashes you'll fall back to the debugger prompt, which you can use 
to gather more info about what happened.
In particular you can use the command 'bt' (backtrace) to list the functions in 
the stack, that info is usually helpful
when debugging this sort of problems.
