There are no postscript graphics routines in Octave, so the bug is
most likely in gnuplot.

You can find out exactly what commands Octave sends to gnuplot by

  gnuplot_binary = "cat > FILE"

and then running your plot commands and looking at what ends up in

With this information, it should be relatively easy to reproduce the
problem using only gnuplot, and then to generate a useful bug report
for the gnuplot maintainers.
