The issue is still present. The bug was filed against gnuplot printing of TeX-formatted text since this is still the only way to get TeX hardcopy. The quickest way to see the difference is to look at the limits of the integral ("0" and "x") in the resulting pdf file. In the 3.2.4 version they are appropriately sized. In 3.4.3 and onwards they are too small. The change happened a long time ago in the upgrade from 3.2.X to 3.4.X.

5/15/2011 is not so recent now. Has this problem been fixed? It seems to work better now, especially with opengl+fltk. But the results I see now are not exactly the same as what Michael showed in his original testpdf.pdf file, but maybe that's because of font differences? The attached file is what I see using 3.8.0.

Well, printing with opengl+fltk doesn't work, but that's a separate bug. I'm attaching a screen shot for that one.

Confirmed that this is still an issue even with a very recent tip (5/15/2011).

The attached 2 plots (Figure 15.7 in the Manual)
show a problem with the gnuplot tex interpreter.
The PDF testpdf.pdf is from 3.2.4, testpdf_3_5_0.pdf
is from the current 3.5.0+.

The chosen font for 3.5.0+ (and I am quite sure for
3.4.0) is smaller than under current 3.2.4. It
is nearly unreadable.

While this is still under development for both gnuplot
and fltk, it would be good to try to recover the 3.2.4
functionality for gnuplot.

The script used, copied directly from the Manual pg. 258,
is also attached. Note that it does not
include the 'interpreter','tex' option, but works anyhow.
The use of "interpreter option" is mentioned in the current
Manual, but is not defined.
