Thanks, Marco.

I've checked that nested2 can be accessed directly (not as part of an anonymous function) and that a first-level nested functions can form part of an anonymous function.

I don't think it has got anything to do with being unable to take handles, because it works if this is nested one layer deep instead of two layers deep.

Dear all,

the included code (quite ugly, I admit) does not work on 4.0.0 and 4.1.0+ (nested2 function not found), while it works in Matlab. Is it related to "handles to nested functions not yet supported"? Anyway, I do not get such an error message.
