This bug is still present in the current dev 4.3.0 (39f39eb4e476).

I filed task #14243 about rewriting legend.m

The problem is that the legend object has text objects underneath it as well as having a fontsize property. When the fontsize is changed on the underlying text objects the legend axes object is destroyed and re-created. See bug #41142. This causes an error when the set() function tries to address the non-existent legend object.
