No. The interface definitely sends $$ before and after
the formula just as they occur in the .tex file that was
captured to a file and which I later imported.

I agree that TeXmacs appears to be in text mode. But the
$$ .... $$ markers are there, so I do not know why.

Do you have any other suggestions on how to debug this?
Are there any other plug-ins working in native Windows
TeXmacs that do successfully produce math mode output?

Perhaps I will have to revert my development of this new
Axiom interface to Linux first and see if the problem
also exists there.

Is that a limitation of the way in which parts of formula
can be selected in TeXmacs? What causes this limitation?
Is it specific to the \over construction. Will it also
happen if I convert to the \frac{}{} construction?

Do you mean simply replacing \over (which Axiom generates
now) wiht just / ? If it is that simple, then perhaps
it would be nice to let the user decide through an option
switch specific during Axiom command input.

Thanks for your continuing help.
