[FieldTrip] problem reading 4d header

Dear fieltrip users,
I am using fieldtrip to analyze my 4D/BTI data on a Linux machine with a 64-bit Matlab version and I am getting an error I don't know how to solve:

hdr = ft_read_header(['/data/ld1/home/bx95/c,rfDC']);
??? SWITCH expression must be a scalar or string constant.

Error in ==> read_4d_hdr at 60
  switch format

Error in ==> ft_read_header at 153
    orig            = read_4d_hdr(datafile);

If I try to read the same data on my Windows PC with 32-bit Matlab I have no problem reading the header file (but I can't even finish the preprocessing before it runs out of memory, therefore the switch to the Linux machine), so I'm pretty clueless here... Can any of you help me?
