Bumping the version up to "dev" since this is still present.  The issue seems to be related to broadcasting and I have changed the Summary to reflect that.

A simple test case with broadcasting that fails is


([1;0]*j) .^ [1, 0]
ans =

   0.0000 + 1.0000i   1.0000 +      0i
        0 +      0i      NaN -    NaNi


But if the matrices are full and there is no broadcasting then this works


([1,1; 0,0]*j) .^ [1, 0; 1, 0]
ans =

   0 + 1i   1 + 0i
   0 + 0i   1 + 0i

I tried on 5.2.0

> (j*[0;0]).^[2 1 0]

ans =

   0   0   1
   0   0   1

>> (j*[0;0;0]).^[2 1 0]

ans =

   0   0   1
   0   0   1
   0   0   1

>> (j*[0;1;0]).^[2 1 0]

ans =

   0.00000 + 0.00000i   0.00000 + 0.00000i       NaN -     NaNi
  -1.00000 + 0.00000i   0.00000 + 1.00000i   1.00000 + 0.00000i
   0.00000 + 0.00000i   0.00000 + 0.00000i       NaN -     NaNi

j is the complex operator

note the NaN in the last one




>> (j*[0]).^[2 1 0]


ans =

   0   0   1

>> (j*[1]).^[2 1 0]


ans =

  -1 + 0i   0 + 1i   1 + 0i

>> (j*[0;1]).^[2 1 0]


ans =

   0.00000 + 0.00000i   0.00000 + 0.00000i       NaN -     NaNi
  -1.00000 + 0.00000i   0.00000 + 1.00000i   1.00000 + 0.00000i
