some people have (results very inconsistent) reported a significant delay the first time creating a plot, and then all subsequent plots taking a 'normal' amount of time. I have seen this, but I'm on Windows 7, and I haven't noticed it as a real problem in several versions of Octave. I believe it was mentioned that it has something to do with Windows loading a font-cache for the first time?
If you try it once and wait a 'long time', do things eventually appear? If so about how long did it take, and do subsequent plot commands happen faster? If you close and re-open Octave, does the situation repeat?
