In gnuplot 4.6.2 'set term post mono' appears to produce colour plots when used with the command 'unset key'.

For example the following:

unset key
set term post mono
set out "sin.eps"
p sin(x)
set out
set term x11

Produces a colour plot where I would expect a black and white one.

Below is the output I receive from show version long.

    I can confirm the bug, this affects also other drivers (at least pngcairo). It does not happen neither with 4.6.1, nor CVS.

    This is a duplicate of bug report #1225.
    The underlying problem has already been fixed in CVS in response to that earlier report.
