Out of curiosity, I was testing further @gramm and came across an infinite recursion at the highlighted lines:

To reproduce it, use the following class:

classdef recurse
    value = [];
    function obj = recurse ()
      obj(1).value.prop = 42;

Calling the constructor returns:

octave:1> recurse
error: max_recursion_depth exceeded
error: called from
    recurse at line 7 column 25

This disappears if obj.value is used instead of obj(1).value.
