I checked in a changeset that should take care of this (https://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/7994f91cbdb8).  It only detects the pattern "classdef NAME".  If you are doing inheritance or providing attributes it will probably fail.  Still, this should be good enough for most cases.

Marking as Ready for Test.

In the Qt GUI, if I run "edit" to pull up a new filew, enter a classdef definition in the new file, and then save it, the Save As dialog gets the default file name wrong. If the class has any methods defined, the name of the first method is used for the M-file name. If the class has no methods defined, the default file name is blank. I would expect it to use the name of the class as the default file name in any case.

Low priority, obviously.
