OK.  Octave generates a temporary file name for saving the data.  I'm
not sure what format those strings will have on your system, but I
suspect that the bug is not in Octave.

If you want to see exactly what plot commands are sent to gnuplot, set
gnuplot_binary to be "/bin/cat".  For example, on my system, it looks like

  octave:1> gnuplot_binary = "/bin/cat"
  gnuplot_binary = /bin/cat
  octave:2> a = 1:100; gplot(a')
  octave:3> set data style lines
  pl "/tmp/oct-14102aaa" t "line 1"

Does Octave on your system behave the same way, or does the temporary
file name already contain c:ŠÜcygwinŠÜ, or does it look like c:cygwin at
this point?
