on CYGWIN_NT-5.1 1.7.9(0.237/5/3) 2011-03-29 10:10 i686 Cygwin

This problem is probably due to using incompatible versions of the cygwin DLL.
Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
and delete all but the most recent version.  The most recent version *should*
reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where 'x' is the drive on which you have
installed the cygwin distribution.  Rebooting is also suggested if you
are unable to find another cygwin DLL.

Of course is it possible that what I see on WinXP , broken
communication between octave and gnuplot,
is different from what was sawn on Vista32 and W7/64 (Exception:

as octave has a very large number of dll dependency and it execute
also gnuplot, it has a high chance to catch
problems in this area.
