This has been fixed sometime since April.  With 20735:418ae0cb752f from 11/22/15 the problem example now works in Octave.  Marking as fixed and closing report.

I came across the following with structure arrays; MATLAB is fine with it but am not sure it is a valid syntax.

A = struct('A',1,'B',1);
[A(:).C] = deal(1);
error: invalid assignment to cs-list outside multiple assignment
error: assignment failed, or no method for 'scalar struct = scalar'

A = struct('A',1,'B',1);

% works fine if numel(A) > 1
A = struct('A',{1,2},'B',{1,2});
[A(:).C] = deal(1);

A = struct('A',{1,2},'B',{1,2});
[A.C] = deal(1);
