Yes. Maybe a single fix has closed a couple of reports, but never 10.
I'm sure that's a record that will stand for a while.
Such impressive fix (chapeau!), why did you push it to the default branch,
where it will have to wait a year or so, and not to the stable branch?
It's too big a change to implement this close to the release. The
only testing has been my own, which was extensive (I dumped all of
the plot demos at least four times and compared to both previous
versions of Octave and Matlab), but probably still not sufficient.
Ideally, it gets some testing on the development branch and if
everything is fine it could be backported to stable for the first
bug fix release.
