I don't know if gnuplot 3.5 supports multiple windows for X11 display, but
gnuplot 3.6 does. To switch beteween multiple windows, use command

set term x11 <n>

where <n> is the display number index starting from 0. So one can have
multiple displays active at the same time.

As for multiple plots within the same window, you can use my multiplot
support available on the contrib site for octave. It uses the gnuplot 3.6
multiplot extension to support the subplot() command. The multiplot
extension is not clean impelmentation. It requires one to swithc back
to single plot mode before it displays all the subplots.

Hope this helps.
