dEbian Bugs RC

Package: gnuplot-x11
Version: 4.6.0-5
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

After the last upgrade, the fonts are unreadable and zoom doesn't work
with the default terminal. This is a major regression.

I'll have to check the font size problem (this difference may be small,
and with the older version, I needed to zoom to get full readability,
so that the main problem is the zoom).

Here the "Show grid" option doesn't work either. And the coordinates
displayed at the bottom don't change. I saw a similar problem a long
time ago in the past (under Mac OS X, IIRC), but I can't find a trace
of this problem in my archives. This is reproducible with:

$ gnuplot -persist <<EOF
plot '-' using 1:2 t '' with line
0 0
10 10
e
EOF

(this is the usual way to run gnuplot from scripts), but not in
interactive use (i.e. when typing commands at the prompt).

severity 668690 important
thanks

Downgraded to important since the default terminal can be overriden
by setting $GNUTERM. But this is a major bug with this terminal.



Concerning this one, I've reported it as Debian bug 668955:
