    I am unable to set a different linetype for the bottom surface.

    set hidden3d offset 1

    does not set different linetypes for the top and bottom surfaces.  Am I doing something wrong?  This seems to only be a problem from version 4.6 onwards.

    This is a bug that is triggered if you have no linetypes defined. See "help linetype".
    I do not fully understand the bug, but for now a work-around is to say:
       set linetype 1 lc 1

    That logically should have no effect at all, since it just sets the line to its own color.  But as a side effect it flips the line color processing into palette/rgb mode (independent of whether you are actually using either of these), and this bypasses the bug.
