For 2-D plots, FLTK pans when a left mouse drag is done. So for FLTK, it does the same thing with 2-D and 3-D plots.

Gnuplot does nothing by default with a left mouse drag on a 2-D plot.

I agree. And does the behavior change based on whether a 2-D graph, like plot(), is done or a 3-D plot, like surf, is done?

The initial mouse-drag function when plotting with FLTK is to pan the plot view. The initial mouse-drag function when plotting with gnuplot rotates the plot view. This should probably be consistent between plotting toolkits and consistent with what Matlab does by default (I'm not sure what that is).
