Ah, I had never needed structs before, so have never been through
this particular code path. I have reproduced the problem with Matlab-
generated matfiles, so now we know that it's not Octave-specific.
I removed the offending line that causes the crash and it's clear to
me that there's a deeper issue. I poked around for several minutes
and didn't see the root of the problem. Unfortunately, I don't have
time to investigate any more deeply. My thesis deadline looms.
Sorry I can't be of greater help.
