I don't think this is really worth trying to fix.  You can type

  replot "sin(x)" w l

and avoid the problem.

In 2.0.14, there is a new function called `graw' that allows you to
send raw commands to gnuplot, if that is what you want to do.  Then
you can say

  graw ("replot sin(x) w l\n")

and Octave won't try to be smart about assigning a label in the key
for your plot.

BTW, please report bugs to address@hidden
