Is there a specific reason why you are using the gnuplot toolkit?

If fltk works on your system, you should have more stable and faster
behaviour using it.  Just try this before plotting:


If you are forced using gnuplot, try forcing a small delay between
plotting commands, like this:


this may help your operating system and file system while it exchanges
data with gnuplot through a pipe.  If time is not an issue, you can try
setting a longer pause, just to be sure:
