I am not the original reporter of the issue, but I have the exact same
I am running on OS X 10.8.2, with all programs built from Macports (octave
3.6.3, gnuplot 4.6.1, aquaterm 1.1.1). 

When trying to plot an image with gnuplot with aquaterm, everything seems
   plot "image.png" binary filetype=png w rgbimage

Then, when plotting a curve in octave, everything runs fine too: 
   plot(rand(1, 10))
However, imaging in aquaterm provides an empty set of axes (white
   im = imread('image.png');
Then, if changing the term to x11, the image can be displayed:
   setenv("GNUTERM", "x11");
So that it really seems that there is an issue between octave and aqua
