What does this say
which -all std
Mine looks like this:
>> which -all std
C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2014b\toolbox\matlab\datafun\std.m
C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2014b\toolbox\matlab\timeseries\@timeseries\std.m % timeseries method

The error has nothing to do with a matlab function called std. It's matlab leaking a C++ exception. You can trigger a similar error with a simple dir command (still not fixed in R2015a).
The error message is completely unhelpful as it does not tell you which function is actually responsible for the error. Futhermore, it's not even possible to catch the error ( try ... catch doesn't work) nor break into the debugger when it occurs ( dbstop if error doesn't trip).

Most likely, you've come across a bug in matlab. Unfortunately, the error message is generated by some underlying C++ code and has not been dealt with properly by matlab, so it's difficult to tell you what caused it.
If you can, post your script. Otherwise, execute your script one line at a time and find which line actually causes the error to occur and tell us what's on that line.
The error message is completely unhelpful and matlab shouldn't leak C++ error to the user, since there's nothing they can do about.
