I mostly use gnuplot in batch mode myself, so I don't really know about
interactive terminals (I don't use the interactive features of the X11
terminal much either).

Again, if you want that to get fixed, you'll either need to get upstream
QT, the Qt maintainer of Cygwin or (if you happen to have a fix for
Cygwin) the Cygwin maintainers.  I'll happily build with the Qt terminal
if it actually works.

That's a wxWidget upstream bug, really.  I'm not keen on patching around
that in gnuplot, so my preference is if it was fixed by wxWidgets one
way or the other (and by fixed I don't mean that the fatal error gets
demoted to a warning like some build option for wxWidgets apparently
allows you to do).

Now, I'd be much more excited about that wxWidgets terminal if it
allowed gnuplot to optionally run without X11, do you know if that's
