The manual says (I am behind the curve: I still run 6.24, but I doubt
either the behavior or this portion of the manual changed):

`C-c C-c'
     Toggle checkbox status or (with prefix arg) checkbox presence at
     point.  With double prefix argument, set it to `[-]', which is
     considered to be an intermediate state.  

That's consistent with the behavior you observe: C-u C-c C-c toggles
"presence", i.e. whether the checkbox is there or not. To toggle the
checkbox, just use C-c C-c.

HTH,
Nick
