I made a mistake, it's actually Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit.

The workplace has an atmosphere of vigilence toward sharing info about
work related assets in the open.  I will try to duplicate the problem
at home and post the specified details.

Unfortunately, duplicating it at home is a no-go.  I am running into a
different problem between octave and gnuplot on Windows 7 Professional
64-bit.  The problem seems to be accurately captured by someone else's
account .

I'm going to treat octave as a strictly nongraphical application for
the time being.

Thanks again.
