I guess, like me (and Mac users, and most Windows users), you are using a Mesa OpenGL driver. This is a very annoying known upstream bug (see bug #48689) and there is nothing we can do about it except moving away from gl2ps and reimplementing our low-level printing system from scratch.

The only known workaround is to either clip patches and surfaces before printing or use automatic axes limits.

Closing report as a duplicate.

there was an error. Once more:

demo fill 1
print /tmp/foo1.svg
ylim([-1 0.9]);
print /tmp/foo2.svg

ls -l /tmp/foo*.svg

gives the following sizes:

foo1.svg:   8K
foo2.svg: 560K

If ylim is further reduced (eg. ylim([-1 0.8]) it goes even further

foo2.svg: 763K

and so on.
