Update of bug#65085 (group octave):

                Category:                    None => Interpreter            
              Item Group:                    None => Missed Error or Warning

             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 
        Operating System:       Microsoft Windows => Any                    


Follow-up Comment #2:

"exit" is a function.  Like any other function, you can hide it by declaring a
variable with the same name.  As a programmer, you should generally not use
variable names that collide with existing functions.

Octave attempts to be Matlab-compatible so that code can be run under either
interpreter.  It is valid in Matlab to declare a variable named "exit" which
overrides the exit function and so Octave must do the same.

Marking as "Won't Fix".
