At the point of assignment my rhs matrix has to be hermitean.-
i would expect that it just takes the upper or lower triangle, depending
on the declaration of the hermitean matrix (upper / lower), but I
havn't checked this.
I agree that this behaviour is dangerous, so an explicit conversion
should be preferred.
Being a theoretical physicist I'm used to assign anything to everything,
as long a correct results are obtained. :)
