Which version of Gnuplot did you use / how did you compile it / with
which sources? If you used the one from modules.contextgarden.net for
windows, that was a bad idea (and my bad that I forgot to remove it
from there) since I haven't updated it for a while.

I changed textscale to fontscale on gnuplot developers' request in
February 2011.

Gnuplot 4.6.0 already includes the context terminal, so it might be
the best idea to try with official gnuplot binary (or sources).
