Follow-up Comment #12, bug #48474 (project octave):

I can think of a couple paths to pursue this. It's already been shown that
Octave is doing the correct thing, and gnuplot 5 on its own has the same
incorrect on-screen output.

1. Someone could report this to gnuplot. As far as I know Dan Sebald and
Tatsuro MATSUOKA are active with the gnuplot project, adding them in cc now.
Is it worth trying to improve on-screen rendering with gnuplot's windows
terminal or is it a dead-end?

2. Someone could verify what terminals are being built and made available in
gnuplot with the mxe-octave build process (simply run "set term" in gnuplot),
see whether another terminal is available or can be made available, and make
that terminal be the default choice in Octave. May need changes to both
mxe-octave and octave, or maybe it's not possible to cross-build the qt
terminal for example.

Bug reports about more than one problem are problematic to keep track of, so
let's just collect information about these two possibilities for now.

And as to severity, someone is welcome to overrule me, I'm no authority (and
as with all bug reports, people willing to work on it are more important than
what the severity level says). It seems to me that in general people are more
concerned with the "print" output of figures than the on-screen display, some
users open the resulting files in an image or svg editor for example and make
fixes to work around various shortcomings.
