Forgot to mention that the result in GNU Octave is

error: operator <op>: nonconformant arguments (op1 is 3x3, op2 is 3x1)

I think the problem is related to broadcasting the vector with sparse matrices.

Not sure though if this is a bug or a feature yet to implement.

Hi, the following code fails in GNU Octave

a = [1 2 0; 0 0 1; 1 0 0];
b = [1 2 3]';

% this works
a .* b

% this don't

other commands which fail are

sparse(a).^ b
sparse(a)./ b
sparse(a) + b
sparse(a) - b

In matlab they all return a sparse matrix
