Comment (by SergeyBiryukov):

 Being called from `meta_box_prefs()` and `do_meta_boxes()`,
 `get_hidden_meta_boxes()` returns different results, due to different
 `$screen` values.

 In `meta_box_prefs()`, it's:
 WP_Screen Object( [id] => book, [base] => post, ... )
 In `do_meta_boxes()`, it's:
 stdClass Object( [id] => book, [base] => book )
 Note the difference in `base` value.

 Not sure what the preferred option is, but [attachment:18958.patch] at
 least makes it consistent.
