Octave works best with gnuplot 4.2, which is available from

Octave now sends data over the same pipe that is used to send commands
to gnuplot.  While this avoids the problem of cluttering /tmp with
data files, it is no longer possible to use the mouse to zoom in on
plots.  This is a limitation of gnuplot, which is unable to zoom when
the data it plots is not stored in a file.  Some work has been done to
fix this problem in newer versions of gnuplot (> 4.2.2).  See for
example, this thread

on the gnuplot development list.
