you mean:

    import Gnuplot



kills the current wgnuplot.exe (I'm working on WinXP) as well as the current
plot window and starts a new gnuplot session (new wgnuplot.exe). The problem
is that I want to keep the former plot windows (I want them to appear one
after the other).

I've read read about the problems with Win on the IPython page. The function
you've mentioned (gp_new()) is a pure IPython feature, right?
