Boolean graphics properties take the value of "on" or "off". The set (graphic_handle, "property_name") is supposed to list all of the possible values the property can take along with the default value wrapped in '{}'.

For boolean properties, it always wraps the second value of "on" with "{}". Sample code with property "beingdeleted" which has a default of "off" and "clipping" which has a default of "on".

Interestingly, the documentation in the Octave manual gets this right.
