GraphicsMagick-1.3.8: GNU Octave in Fedora and Ubuntu

I‘ve been an Octave user on several machines and everything worked perfectly well until Fedora 14, which has a newer version of the software and thus a serious conflict of incompatible libraries. For many image loaders the following type of error is shown just before Octave crashes:

octave: magick/semaphore.c:525: LockSemaphoreInfo: Assertion `semaphore_info !=
 (SemaphoreInfo *) ((void *)0)' failed.
panic: Aborted -- stopping myself...

Do not waste time trying to find a bug in the code of an Octave program. It is a known issue that GraphicsMagick and Octave are having this year.

Somebody posted debugging information and John W. Eaton responded with a link to this thread from January. The best solution is probably to escape to previous versions for the time being.
