As a sort of last-resort workaround:
If you're not using it for publication quality figures, but for e.g.
databrowsing, you could create a set of nasty looking figures by setting
the renderer to zbuffer, instead of opengl. You can do it while creating
a fig by figure('renderer','zbuffer'). Zbuffer doesn't work with
transparency, which is essential for masking. If you don't use masking,
it might actually look fine I think, but not entirely sure. At least you
can get some workable figures now, maybe create publication quality on a
Hope it's a bit useful,
