That's right! Eureka!
 /home/victor/.config/FreeMat/FreeMat.conf was owned by root. I manually 
chowned it to my user and now it works all like a charm!!!!
I didn't realize that ~/.config was a directory created for FreeMat usage and 
I didn't touch anything it contained (at least I believe that!). 
Perhaps the bug is  in the port.
In fact I created two new users and started from them FreeMat. The freshly 
created ~/.config/FreeMat/FreeMat.conf was owned again by root!

Many thanks
