I fixed this on the development branch here (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/66977aecf3c0). The problem was that, for text objects, later bits of the code wanted the position properties in "data" units. But "data" is not a "units" value of all graphic objects like axes.

I also added Dan Sebald to the CC list in case this was not the right fix.

Closing report.

This (gnuplot) issue is still present in Octave 4.2.0.

When a "units" property is added to a graphics object using addproperty, subsequent manipulations of this property, or any other user defined property raises an error:

These errors only occur with gnuplot graphics toolkit.
