Follow-up Comment #3, bug #32863 (project octave):

After the warning, I get

See MATLAB 7.0.4 Release Notes, Assigning Nonstructure Variables As Structures
Displays Warning for details.

and clicking on it

signing to a nonstructure variable as if it were a structure is not
recommended in MATLAB. For example, if variable x holds a double (as shown
below), then attempting to add a fieldname to it, thus converting x to a
structure, is not good programming practice and should generate an error.
x = 10;
x.name = magic(3);

Note that if x were empty (i.e., x == []), then assigning a field to it as if
it were already a structure is acceptable.

I'm using 7.6.0.
