The root of this problem is that the y range of your data is degenerate.
All the y values are the same, within a *very* small error margin, way
down close to the technical limit of what a double-precision floating
point number can represent (1 +/- n * DBL_EPS, for small integer 'n').
gnuplot's automatic tic step sizing algorithm fails, this close to the
boundary. As a workaround, you could remove the constant 1.0 from the
data before plotting:
plot 'datafile' u 1:($2-1.0)
