You need a version of gnuplot which has mouse and zoom support. I use
version 3.8c which sort of works with x11. You also need to add 
gset mouse;
to your .octaverc before any other gnuplot commands.

I have to say that zoom support is a bit broken. Zoom level is not reset
between plots so that new plots might have completely wrong axis
settings. I have to reset gnuplot (graw("resetŠÜn")) between plots to fix

Yes. Some save formats do not support all the datatypes yet and might
crash when you try to save. It's a safe bet to put
default_save_format = "mat4-binary";
to your .octaverc to avoid data loss.
