This has been fixed on the development branch with the huge overhaul by jwe to disp and display.  I now get

octave:1> c = {"string", ftp("ftp.gnu.org")}
c =
{
  [1,1] = string
  [1,2] =

    <class ftp>
}

behavior still the same in 4.2.0. 

>> c = {"string", ones(2)}
c =
{
  [1,1] = string
  [1,2] =

     1   1
     1   1

}
>> c = {"string", ftp("ftp.gnu.org")}
c =
{
  [1,1] = string
FTP Object
host: ftp.gnu.org
user: anonymous
  dir: /
mode: binary
}

and as mentioned below Matlab displays things in an entirely different manner:

>> c = {'string',ones(2)}
c =
  1×2 cell array
    'string'    [2×2 double]
>> c = {'string', ftp('ftp.gnu.org')}
c =
  1×2 cell array
    'string'    [1×1 ftp]

Consider

c = {"string", ones(2)}

which prints

c =
{
  [1,1] = string
  [1,2] =

     1   1
     1   1

}

The labels like "[1,1]" are missing if the array contains an object. Consider

c = {"string", ftp("ftp.gnu.org")}
c =
{
  [1,1] = string
FTP Object
host: ftp.gnu.org
user: anonymous
  dir: /
mode: binary
}

Unfortunately I see no easy way of treating it, as matlab doesn't print cell arrays in this manner and the matlab definition of the display function prints the label whereas octaves cell.cc(Cell:print_raw) method needs and alternative means of displaying the element contents with the printing of the element label treated elsewhere.

This is an annoyance rather than a blocking issue, but I thought I should document the issue in the bug tracker
