Follow-up Comment #17, bug #31974 (project octave):

It is also possible that Matlab changed the behavior of real*complex just to
make this thing work. I would advise to avoid doing such a general (and kinda
stupid) change and only implement the constant folding optimization as
suggested by JWE, i.e. a+b*i  -> complex(a, b) where a, b are scalar
constants, because that's what most people mean. Don't change anything else.
It does mean a sort of inconsistency, but not quite, because we can say that
the expression is simply parsed as a constant.
