i fought enough with matlab under dwm but i don't remember this phenomenon
(un)fortunately i cannot try it now as i don't have matlab at hand

as for annoying figures, i usually forced them to dock by starting my
scripts with

close all
set(0, 'DefaultFigureWindowStyle', 'docked')

i occasionally tried to use matlab from cmdline (matlab -nodisplay or
matlab -nodesktop -nosplash) but the terminal handling of the
interpreter is horrible (no readline support)
