Package: octave3.2
Version: 3.2.4-8
Severity: normal

If executing the script below (the contents of the testplot function 
is copied from the manual), the first call of testplot succeeds, but
the second one fails with an error:
error: addproperty: a `__plotyy_axes__' property already
exists in the graphics object
error: called from:
error:   /usr/share/octave/3.2.4/m/plot/plotyy.m at line 193, column 1

error:   testplot at line 7, column 5
error:   /tmp/test.m at line 15, column 1


function testplot()
 % copied from manual
 x = 0:0.1:2*pi;
 y1 = sin (x);
 y2 = exp (x - 1);
 ax = plotyy (x, y1, x - 1, y2, @plot, @semilogy);
 xlabel ("X");
 ylabel (ax(1), "Axis 1");
 ylabel (ax(2), "Axis 2");
