I've tried to plot simple graph with the following command:
gnuplot -p -e 'plot [-2:2][-2:2] x**1000'
You can see the result in attachment (no solid line approximately between -0.5 and 0.5)
It turns out that gnuplot handles tiny numbers very specific:
$ gnuplot -e 'print 0.47**1000' print 0.47**1000 ^ line 0: undefined value
This behaviour differs from IEEE-754
$ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Release: 16.04 Codename: xenial $ gnuplot --version gnuplot 5.0 patchlevel 3
