Starting by a plot command in octave:
looks like "windows" although pressing "h" on the plot window gives a help
text in octave that talks about an x11 terminal window. Nevertheless, the
only working keys I found are "h" for help and "q" for quit. I get the mouse
pointer as a cross and the actual mouse position on the lower left of the
windows border, so it looks like a "windows" term to me.

No, not that I know of. Just plain Win XP and the MSVC binary distrib, no
mingw, no cygwin installed, no X server installed, ...

yes, gnuplot has the wxt terminal. Even when I do a system('wgnuplot'); in
octave, gnuplot starts up with the wxt term. Starting pgnuplot by double
clicking (it hangs from within octave...), it also starts with wxt term. So,
a missing X server or wxt support cannot be the reason ... strange ...
