I've now updated my RPCEmu installation to RO5.19 (10-Mar-13), and the
latest available !Boot, which seems to be dated 27 Nov 2012, and I'm
pleased to confirm that, if Behaviour is set to 'Lower if not at back',
ToggleBD now works correctly.

However, if Behaviour is set to 'Raise if not at front', ToggleBD does
that, but the toggle action doesn't return the backdrop to the back.
This is not a problem, because the other setting works, but I'm curious
as to why there should be a difference when, logically, one would expect
the same result.
