- Windows Vista:
gnuplot.exe starts with a delay (always, not just the first time), but
then it executes commands and exits normally.
- Linux + wine:
gnuplot.exe starts with a slight delay (less than one second, but
noticeable), it accepts one command then hangs.
Non-interactive mode works (e.g. wine gnuplot.exe 'plot x' or wine
- Windows 7:
This is where it gets interesting!
If I start gnuplot.exe interactively, plot something, then exit, then it
exits normally. However, if I don't plot anything, just do "sh var" or
"exit", it hangs!
Non-interactively, 'gnuplot.exe -e "plot x"' works and exits but
'gnuplot -V' doesn't.
This is all with Tatsuro's latest binary package which does have
2011/03/17 as its last Changelog entry.

Yes, there is a delay at every startup.
