The command-line bug on DEC UNIX 4.0

Hi;

I'm experiencing the following command-line bug with Matlab 4.2 on a
DEC AlphaStation 500/500 running Digital UNIX V4.0B (Rev. 564) :

for example, when I try to type the "who" command, I get:

-----

Your variables are:

The commands just work fine. Only the keyboard input is bugeous.
The weird thing is that this bug doesn't happen on our DEC AlphaServer
4100 5/466
running exactly the same operating system (same version, same revision).

I've browsed through TMW's website, so I know this has been fixed in
Matlab 5, and that Matlab 4.2 isn't supported under Digital UNIX 4.0
(I've had enough of these "You can sit on your problem" answers).

Has any user figured out the potential source for this bug, and/or a
workaround ?

Thanks a lot in advance. Regards;
