I had the same problems as reported by several people earlier with
non-working plotting in octave 3.4.0 in cygwin-1.7.9.

I got windows 7 - 64 bit system (with latest windows 7 service pack as of
date of writing) working with plotting and octave 3.4.0 this way:

I did:
1. Downgrade to cygwin 1.7.8 and reinstalling all cygwin packages.
2. Close all cygwin applications.
3. Open "cmd.exe"
4. cd C:\cygwin
5. Run: C:\cygwin\bin\ash.exe
6. Run: /bin/rebaseall

Then (I did no reboot) I started XWin and octave and: "plot(1:10,1:10)"
gives me a window with the plot. I have also run octave using some scripts
of mine and it works fine with both "plot" and "imagesc". Octave seems to
work in cygwin now like in Unix for me;) However, I am clueless as to why
the "fix" reported above did work.

Here is my uname -a:
CYGWIN_NT-6.1-WOW64 angmar 1.7.8(0.236/5/3) 2011-03-01 09:36 i686 Cygwin


Thanks Eirik,
for the feedback. At least 1.7.8 seems to be the workaround for
the bug in 1.7.9 not only for Win XP.

As favour could you test also the last cygwin snapshots ?

It is located on:
and to day is cygwin1-20110606.dll.bz2

You need just to copy cygwin1-20110606.dll as cygwin1.dll in your
c:\cygwin\bin (or similar) with all cygwin process non running

Save you current cygwin1.dll somewhere else to easily recover
the 1.7.8 status.
