You are using qt or fltk graphics_toolkit so that gnuplot is not related to your issue.
Indeed, this used to be a problem with versions of gl2ps prior to 1.3.9.
Beware 1.4.0 is not ABI compatible with prior versions (a few new public functions have been exposed) so you may have to recompile Octave against this version if a simple LD_PRELOAD does not work.
