I just pushed a fix for this to github and posted new windows installer 
candidates at


If you see any other questionable behavior in the history window let me 
know. I think I understood the ramifications of the fix I made, but I am 
not 100% certain.

The windows installers also include the most recent version of gnuplot. 
  Hopefully that will address your problem regarding zooming and 

If it does not, try changing the gnuplot->terminal configuration 
parameter to "qt".  qt is one of the other terminal options in the new 
version of gnuplot.  It makes a pretty plot, but I like the controls on 
the wxt terminal more.  If you are unsatisfied with that, try setting it 
to "windows", which is the third (and to my eye, the worst) of the three 
plot terminal options.  Hopefully one of them will work for you.
