Follow-up Comment #12, bug #33533 (project octave):

After some consideration, I have decided to undo my previous cset.

Rik is right. We like to check arguments a little more in Octave. Moreover,
not only are you relying on undocumented behaviour of strvcat, but the
Mathworks themselves have already deprecated strvcat in favour of char and
will soon remove it from Matlab, precisely because it doesn't check its
arguments carefully enough. You will soon have to change your code even if you
want to keep using Matlab.

If we keep strvcat in Octave, at least we should keep a version that doesn't
have the undesirable behaviour for which the Mathworks is deprecating it.
