This looks like something that will have to be corrected by the Octave authors:

The Leopard release involved some changes in the signal handling internals, which generate these kinds of errors.  I created some patches for Erlang, SML/NJ, and so forth to deal with it but I haven't looked at Octave.

It is worth checking with the main Octave site to see if they have released any updates; most likely, other Leopard users have already complained to them about this problem.
