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.
Doubtful.  It it was just a Windows pipe problem then the developer 
would have probably implemented a sleep just for win32 and not for 
linux-based systems.  Unless of course he/she didn't test it throughouly 
on linux.
