The profile() function does not report the classname in FunctionName when a class function is called (Matlab does).

As a consequence, when looking at the FunctionTable, it is not possible to know if a base function or an overloaded function has been called.

Worse, if both the base function and an overloaded function are successively called, both calls are reported in the same entry of the FunctionTable.
