Just to be sure, why don't you upgrade to Octave 3.2.4 and Gnuplot

Anyway, I suspect neither matters.  It's strange, as I routinely include
gnuplot's ouptput obtained with Octave in Latex without problems.  The
command I use is print('-deps2',filename) or print('-depsc2',filename).

I then include the eps files in Latex with \includegraphics[width=70mm]
and get a pdf file with dvipdf, or ps with dvips.  Is any of this
different from what you do?
