to reproduce: a.b(1).c.d = 1; a.b(1).c.e = 2; a.b(2).c.d = 3; a.b(2).c.e = 4; a = config(a); a2 = struct(a); This causes an obscure problem in ft_checkconfig (trackconfig = 'on') where one of the cfg fields is a structure like above -> this is the case when there is an mri in the input which is read in from dicom, having a field .hdr being a struct-array (1 for each slice), and some of the fields of these headers being structs themselves

found it: it probably suffices to add an extra for-loop. the problem occurs when the function recurs into itself, and when the input is then a 'config-array'.
