I committed the cset here (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/1b2525cdd110).  I changed the call to "::lower" to just "lower" to match other instances in the file.

Also, even though this has a low probability of causing problems, it doesn't really fix something critical so I changed it to apply to the default branch rather than the stable branch.

Attached is a patch that converts the property name to lower-case before matching.

It seems that property names are case-sensitive when used in set() with two input arguments:

>> H = figure;
>> get(H, 'resize')
ans = on
>> get(H, 'Resize')
ans = on
>> set(H, 'resize')
[ off | {on} ]
>> set(H, 'Resize')
error: set: unknown property
>> set(H, 'Resize','off')
>> get(H, 'Resize')
ans = off
