I always assumed this was a Windows pipe-system problem. I have experienced problems in other arenas with pipes under Win98 but not under Win2k in which the Windows pipe system changed. My experience of flakiness with pipes driving gnuplot also followed this pattern. ie. very occasionally, I get misbehaviour (broken plots) under Win98 but I haven't seen it under Win2k. When I experience a broken plot, I just re-run the script and it's typically fine. I don't use it interactively from Python.
