I've tried to reproduce this on Debian squeeze (current stable release)
under Gnome, but I can't get this effect.  The squeeze version of
gnuplot uses wxwidgets2.8, so I suspect this has been fixed by changes
upstream, but it's hard to be sure without a more precise recipe for
what you did (like a list of plot commands).

Could you test this with a more recent gnuplot and let us know if it
still fails?  Reporting a bug against wxwidgets2.8 would be best.

I'm working to migrate all reverse dependencies of wxwidgets2.6 to
wxwidgets2.8 and to get wxwidgets2.6 removed before wheezy, so marking
this as "wontfix" for 2.6.
