Sorry, this is not right.

I don't know if I'd call it something "wrong", but there is something I
think you have misunderstood.
Each time you give the "plot" or "replot" command, gnuplot draws a new
plot -- but it does not erase what's already been drawn at that location
on
the page. When you turn off the arrow, gnuplot does indeed draw a new
(arrowless) version of the plot. But since you didn't change the
origin,
the new plot overlays the older version exactly, and the arrow you see
is
actually the one drawn previously.
To convince yourself that this is really what's happening, reset the
origin
before the final "replot".
