Marking as confirmed. I switched the Catgeory to "Plotting with OpenGL" since it works if you change to the gnuplot toolkit. It seems very likely that this has to do wit the automatic routines that work not to plot unnecessary data. In this case, the y-data is outside the axis limits so it seems to think that it doesn't need to pass the data to OpenGL for rendering.

I understand xlim as being a property of the axis, independent of the data, apparently in accordance with Matlab which does show the line after the xlim command.

You only have 2 points to plot and one point is outside your range , so how do you expect to plot a line?

plot([1 2], [1 3]) ;
axis equal
xlim([1 2]) ;

gives me an empty plot. Interestingly, putting 'axis normal' gives it back.
