Not a silly question at all, Nick. Prior to my post, I let the program
"think" for 45 sec-1min and nothing happened. I let it sit for a bit longer
(well over 1 minute) once I regained my patience and the plot function
worked. Now plotting is quick and seamless.

Thanks for the assistance!

Does it occur repeatedly the first time you plot after opening Octave? is there any repeatability to it? I don't think anyone has hit on a repeatable reason for that delay. I experienced very similar delays anytime the console had to output something long enough to call the pager, and it comes and goes with no explanation I can find.
