I don't think Privoxy's toggle option does what you think it does.
However not all is lost: using Privoxy 3.0.7 beta or later
you can combine the user-agent client-header tagger,
the forward-override action and a browser-plugin that changes
the User-Agent header to build your own Tor toggle.
For details see:
Be sure to read the warning before doing it, though.
Note that nowadays the Torbutton extension is also supposed
Privoxy doesn't do that.
