interp2 can not handle matrix input??

Hello all,

I have a problem. Apparently when I use interp2 with matrices as inputs, I get strange results. Try to run this code:

%%% BEGINNING OF CODE %%%%%%%%%

clear all

% Making vector interpolation of x and y
xcb = linspace(0,5,50);
ycb = linspace(0,5,40);

% Making grid of x and y
[xgr,ygr] = ndgrid(xcb,ycb);

% Define a function
fu = @(x,y) exp(-x./2-y./2);

% Making grid of z
zgr = fu(xgr,ygr);

% Making interpolation function of fu(x,y)
fuint = @(x,y) interp2(xgr',ygr',zgr',x,y,'cubic',NaN);

% Use matrices as inputs:
ytry = [1,2;3,4];
xtry = [1,1;1,1];


% The result of using matrices as input:

result = zeros(size(ytry));
for kr = 1:numel(result)
result(kr) = fuint(xtry(kr),ytry(kr));

% The result of using element by element calculation

%%%%%%%%%%% END OF CODE %%%%%%%%%%

as you can see, the result is different. I try this in matlab 2012b.
This problem doesn't happen if the inputs are row or column vectors. strange.....

please help. thank you in advance.
