Do you also have octave-forge installed?  There's a good chance this is a dupe of bug #448467.  There are two particular SWIG-built packages that can cause this.

Comment 3 Alex Lancaster 2009-08-14 14:31:24 UTC
Yep, I can duplicate this if octave-forge is installed and it goes away if octave-forge is removed.
