This is a known regression that has been observed in both recent linux
distros (with glibc 2.28), this one will be fixed in the upcoming Octave
5.2.0, and in Windows where a change has been pushed but no one confirmed
that it actually fixed the regression (see On both systems, the
workaround is to use "kbhit ()" rather than "pause()".
