* What was the outcome of this action?
octave:1> fir1(10000, [0.01])
error: fir2: grid size must be greater than half the filter order

error: /usr/share/octave/packages/signal-1.2.2/fir2.m at line 89, column 5
error: /usr/share/octave/packages/signal-1.2.2/fir1.m at line 109, column 3
* What outcome did you expect instead?
The generation of a correct finite impulse response filter. This syntax is correct, and has worked for years. This system is updated ~weekly; the bug is probably in the newest update.
This bug appears to be the same as Octave's bug #39177. Second critical-path bug I've seen in 'testing' in more than a decade with Debian. The first was yesterday (hugin). Will revert to previous package.
