Closing as fixed.

I reviewed the patch and it looks good.  It passes the test code I wrote in comment #0.  I think you should push it to stable.

The attached patch fixes the error for me.

The test suite still passes, and the dump_plot_demos script succeeded for the "qt", "fltk" and "gnuplot" graphics toolkits here.

I was working on the default branch. But since this is a regression, I think the changes should be made on stable (where the patch should also apply).

Confirmed on afadaafd88a2. This is a regression since e80a87f65997, where I originally tested this and I was not able to reproduce.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Start octave with

./run-octave -f --no-gui-libs

2) then run

graphics_toolkit fltk
figure ('abc', 'def')        # this will throw an error from set()
findall (0)                  # this will make figure 1 visible
close (1)                    # this will not close the figure

The only way to get rid of the figure was to quit Octave.  This also happens when using the gnuplot toolkit.
