This should already be fixed with this changeset:

If one opens a variable in variable editor (VE) which is not able to be put in QTableView format, no text appears in the QTextEdit view (i.e., the view that mimics the Command window output).  E.g.,

x = rand  (10,20,30);
openvar x

The QTextEdit view appears, but there is no contents.  Further, if one then does

x = rand (10);

the QTextEdit view does not switch to the QTableView.

However, reverse the above order, and the VE works as expected, e.g.,

y = rand (10);
openvar y
[observe view]
y = rand  (10,20,30);
[view changes]
