You're not telling us what was on the plot in the first place, in
particular not the x- and y-extents. I don't recall observing anything
peculiar with the Windows version in that respect, but the plotting
routines may have some idiosyncracies when you try to plot things that
don't fit within the plotting frame.

First see if this works:
