using uigetfile just blocks the Matlab shell. If I type for instance the Mathworks provided example (on a freshly opened Matlab shell) [filename, pathname] = uigetfile('*.m', 'Pick a MATLAB code file'); ... nothing happens and the Matlab shell just becomes unresponsive
I'm using r2015 on RedHatEnterpriseServer (7.2), with java version "1.7.0_91" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (rhel- u91-b00) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.91-b01, mixed mode)
Any ideas?

That could be caused by the interference or interaction from another software. Please check the crash dump and see if other software`s names show up there. You may find crash dump files in the folder shown by using the command below.

uigetfile ordinarily does freeze the shell until you choose a file or close the dialogue box.
The problem is that you're not getting the dialogue box.

well, it was one of those bugs that just disappeared with a new release...
