I've been using gnuplot 4.0 under Windows and I've
noticed a consistent bug with metapost ('mp') driver.
If I use the 'set ylabel' command with a low, positive
value for lmargin, the generated .mp file has a line
with a very big numeric value:
put_text( btex RMS error etex, 429496711.3a, 378.9b,
Then mpost complains about this value when I try to
compile the file:
! Enormous number has been reduced.
and the label is missing in the final eps file. None
of that happens with other drivers (e.g.,
'postscript'). I have also downloaded the last CVS
sources (as of 2005-08-26) and compiled it (under
Cygwin), but still got the same error.
I wonder if this error is caused by some
signed/unsigned conflict in the source code...
I'm sending the .gp script, the data file and the
generated .mp file (error is in the line 180).
