Nonsense exponents got with "save"

Mario Storti-3
Hi all!!

(Installing Octave 1.1.1 from the binary distribution in Linux 1.2.13)

When I save  variables to an ASCII  file the numbers get nonsense high
exponents like  1.2345e+2957, etc...  As a side  effect  I  can't plot
since the interfacing with Gnuplot is through saving files.

Perhaps the following has to  do with this: The  binary is an ELF one,
and I had problems with the libg++ libraries. After I uncompressed the
package the octave binary  couldn't run, asking for libg++.so.27. Then
I upgraded the libg++, libstdc++,  libc and libm libraries. The octave
binary then worked but after I tried some basic  commands I found that
I   couldn't plot() because  of this.  When  I issue the "ldconfig -v"
command I get the following:

ldconfig: version 1.7.3>  
>   /usr/local/lib:
>   /usr/X11R6/lib:
>   libXtst.so.6 => libXtst.so.6.0
(...)
>   /usr/lib:
>   libg++.so.2 => libg++.so.2.7.0
>   lQ23ios8seek_diri => libstdc++.so.27.1.4
        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
>   libstdc++.so.2 => libstdc++.so.2.7.0
(...)
>   libtk.so.1.4.0 => libtk.so.1.4.0
>   libtcl.so.1 => libtcl.so.1.7.4
>   Fix16_abort__FRs => libg++.so.27.1.4
        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
>   libdb.so.2 => libdb.so.2.0.0
>   libgdbm.so.2 => libgdbm.so.2.0.0
(...)

I  think that something   is  wrong with  the "lQ23ios8seek_diri"  and
"Fix16_abort__FRs"  entries. Perhaps some Linux guru   can help me. (I
posted this problem to a Linux oriented list with no success.)

TIA

Mario
