After booting the machine, and opening some windows, the backdrop is
behind the windows. I would expect 'Raise...' to bring the backdrop to
the front of the stack of windows, which it does. However pressing the
hotkeys a second time doesn't sent the backdrop to the back. (It's then
necessary to press ctrl-pgdn to see the open windows again.)

No, the result is the same. If Behaviour is set to 'Raise...', the first
click, on the iconbar icon, brings the backdrop to the front, but the
second click has no effect.

No. It raises/lowers the backdrop only if Behaviour is set to 'Lower...'

This unexpected result occurs only with RPCEmu/RO5.19. Results are as
intended with RPCEmu/RO4.39, RPCEmu/RO6.20 and RiscPC/RO6.20, whether
Behaviour is set to 'Raise...', or 'Lower...'
