Thanks for the info. I'm not feeling quite brave enough to dig into CVS which I know nothing about. Is 2.9.10 stable enough to be worth the effort? 
Otherwise I think I'll export my data and plot it using some other package for quality graphs (namely Plot for MacOS), keeping gnuplot only for rough previews.

After painful search on the internet and debugging 'legend.m', I've found that a low level plot function might work for me as a replacement of 'legend' in the meantime,

   x = linspace(0,10,101) ' ;
   plot1 = [ x , sin( x ) ] ;
   plot2 = [ x , cos( x ) ] ;
   __gnuplot_plot__ plot1 title "Sine" , plot2 title "Cosine"

The legend function in Octave Forge uses a horrible kluge to insert
information in the plot key.  I'm not sure whether it is possible for
it to work reliably.  Octave 2.9.10 will have a completely different
implementation of the Matlab-style plotting functions, including a nwe
legend function which I think will work better.  If you'd like to help
test the new graphics implementation before we make the 2.9.10
snapshot, please try the CVS version of Octave.  If you do try the CVS
version, be aware that you are likely to find some bugs.  But I
suppose you understand that, because you are already using a version
of Octave that is labeled as a development version, right?
