There is also another problem that Peter pointed out to me another
message, but it is really a bug with Octave. If implict_str_to_num_ok
is nonzero, then isnumeric ('some string') will return true, because
it is possible to use 'some string' as a numeric value (with
conversion) at least in some contexts. But I think it should not
really return true. I'll fix that for 2.1.44.
