It's not the data you're feeding to gnuplot that QT is trying to
authenticate, but it is trying to authenticate your access to the
session manager. If you're not running KDE as your desktop (or rather,
if the KDE session manager isn't running), then this error can be
ignored. If you're running KDE, but not running gnuplot as the same
user, then this error can either be ignored, or use sudo to start
