Closing as fixed. If someone gets it again for current dev, it can be reopened.

Thanks for the bug report.

I don't know what patch did it, but the problem seems gone.

Yes, I hit that one too. At some point the character string variable wsh_name all of a sudden contains a scalar struct

Split from bug #64366:

With the VM loaded, the following sequence causes an error:

pkg load io
a = 10;
xlswrite ("/tmp/foo.xlsx", a)

The error is:

error: concatenation operator not implemented for 'matrix' by 'scalar struct' operations
error: called from
    __OCT_oct2spsh__ at line 79 column 16

The non-VM version does not give the error.
