it might be that your script is very quick in executing. the gnuplot
instance that octave talks to is "internal" to each octave run, as soon as
the script finishes executing gnuplot dies, and your plot with it.
If this is the case, look at the help for 'pause' within gnuplot. You may
send a graw("pause") command at the end of your script (i don't remember
if graw() has been included in the stable distribution)
