I am contacting you guys who gave me feedback on Bug#524745.  I asked
debian-admin to install octave3.0 on the sid chroot of some architectures
where the bug happened.  They did it on merulo (ia64) and pescetti

I can perfcetly launch octave on those machines and successfully run the
offending command in postinst:

    octave-3.0.5 --silent --no-history --no-init-file --eval "pkg ('rebuild');"

(although not as root).

I am simply lost here and have no idea on how I can debug this random
