Unfortunately I won't be able to provide a separated gnuplot package, because
I recently completely updated my build system and many libraried gnuplot
depend upon have been renamed and those are not part of the original
2.9.16 package. So providing a single pgnuplot.exe doesn't make sense.

People that want to avoid the problem of gnuplot not starting due to
installation error, installing the redistributable package as mentioned earlier
in this thread should solve the problem.

People that want to avoid the handle leak problem should close regularly
the figure window: plotting a few hundreds time within the same figure
window will quickly go out of resource. Closing the figure exits the underlying
the gnuplot process; hence releasing any allocated resource.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
