tags 492038 upstream

Dear Octave maintainers,

The bug report reproduced below has been filed against the Debian 
package and regards the upstream sources.  The report is recorded at


Package: octave3.0
Version: 1:3.0.1-4
Severity: normal

If you try
you see that it only displays four colours.  In general, pcolor does not
display anything for the last row and column.  Those data are ignored as
far as plotting is concerned.  However, they are taken into account as
far as axis limits are concerned, both for ticks and for colors.  I
don't know if it is done for compatibility with Matlab.  Anyway, this
function corrects the problem when pcolor is called with vector X and Y:

function mypcolor(x,y,z)
