You called this a "new bug" in the subject --- that turns out to have
been a bit misleading. I didn't actually run back-version tests, but as
far as I can see, this is a genuine bug in loadpath_handler(), and has
been there ever since the module was first written by Lars(?).
The theory, as far as I understand it, is this: 'save' wants only the
'set loadpath' part of the path, so the case ACTION_SAVE: entry puts
'limit' to that position in the full path where the $GNUPLOT_LIB path
begins, and thus the fall-through ACTION_GET will stop there. The bug
is that on reaching the limit, it's not reset, so it'll stay in place
forever. The fix is to re-initialize 'limit' to NULL at the same time p
is initialized to NULL.
I'm checking in the fix right away.
