Bug report for Octave 2.1.36 configured for i686-pc-linux-gnu

It is from today's CVS with jwe's patch in response to a bug I found with 
cell arrays.  

Description:
-----------
It is possible to crash Octave if certain things are done with cells and 
structures.  

Repeat-By:
---------

X{2,2}.foo(2).bar(2:3,2:3) = rand (2)
X{2,2}.foo(2).cat = "A string"
X{2,2}.foo(1).str = "A string"
p = X{2,2}.foo(2)

Fix:
---

I do not have a patch.
