Yeah, someone reported that problem I think before I released
my pre-319 version, so I patched that problem. 

What versions did you try that still have the problem? I sent
my patch to the gnuplot team, but never got a responce from it
(its a rather closed circle, and I don't seem to be able to get
on any mailing lists).

But the debian gnuplot does have the vga stuff compiled in, and
is capable of displaying on vga (tried it, few seconds ago).
Only thing is, it's not installed setuid root, so you may have
to be root to run it (or install a setuid root version in /usr/local/bin).
