I guess best fix for it would be to fix the octave cd command such that it
would run cd command on gnuplot also if gnuplot was running.

I have not tried this myself, but running "closeplot" command before the gplot
command could also fix the cd command problem. "closeplot" closes the gplot
pipe and hence next gplot command should start a new pipe to gnuplot which would
hopefully be started in the correct directory.
