The problem is  that the plot function itself is slow. It returns to
octave prompt quickly, but it takes a really long time until the plot is

Some anti-virus program scanning the temp file that octave is making
for gnuplot?

I suspect font loading. On initialization, fontconfig scans all fonts available and build a cache, and this can take a while, depending on the number of fonts present. However, this should only be done once.
