Package: octave-forge
Version: 2004.11.16-3
Severity: important

This simple thing should work:
octave2.1:1> minimize('sin',1)
error: setfields: called with odd number of arguments

But it doesn't! 

According to

It's more than 6 months that this problem exist, and it's still
doesn't work in testing! 

It's a bit annoying!

Anyway, thanks for the great work you do.

Have a nice day.
