1. PostScript stackoverflow from `set terminal postscript' output

I think many of us will have encountered the PostScript `stackoverflow'
error message from gnuplot PostScript output produced after the `set
terminal postscript' command when it is sent to the printer. Level 2
PostScript has a limit of about 4000 stack items. It would be nice if
gnuplot bundled its PostScript output in smaller chunks, but one could
argue that such voluminous output isn't really worth expressing as
PostScript anyway. A work-around is to use an image format for output
- e.g. `set terminal png' to produce Portable Network Graphic output.

I wonder, though, if I've missed something? I'm using gnuplout 3.7.1.

the most recent name I've seen given as the maintainer of the Gnuplot
