TP_NUM_C_BUFS too small

I am testing latest release candidate for octave, and only on cygwin using
the fltk graphics interface when we try to print through ghostscript we have:

octave 4236 E:\cygwin2\bin\octave-3.3.92.exe: *** fatal error -
Internal error: TP_NUM_C_BUFS too small: 79987540 > 10

This is on latest cygwin snapshot, but it crash on any version release.
I suspect the error message is a red herring. Am I right ?

The plot is built as expected, so gs is doing its work; from strace output
(available on
I guess that gs execution is unable to return back on octave.

Suggestion for debugging ?

gdb output is puzzling as I doubt the output code is coming from octave

"Program exited with code 030000000005."

Thank in advance
