Follow-up Comment #7, bug #53858 (project octave):
The original example still creates an endless loop for me.
I can understand what is going on, but don't have a fix just yet. When the
variable editor windows are first set up a.b is a scalar struct, and the
sub-window is displaying 'a.b.e'. When the code
a.b(2).c = 'string';
is executed the class of a.b changes from scalar struct to struct array.
Therefore, 'a.b.e' now returns a cell array equivalient to 'a.b(:).e'. The
Variable Editor is not expecting a cell array and throws errors.
If you then close the 'a.b.e' tab, and re-open it by double-clicking on the
original entry, it showes 'a.b(1).e'.
So, when the class changes we need to reflect that in the indexing expression
