Thanks for your report. I cannot reproduce the incorrect size of the colorbar image but I can confirm the ylabel disappearing. The latter is a known issue: colorbar changes the activepositionproperty of the axes. You can workaround this bug by changing the property back to "outerposition" before printing:

set (gca, "activepositionproperty", "outerposition")
print("settling-times", "-dpdflatexstandalone");

As for the first reported problem (wrong scale for the colorbar image), I used to observe the same issue with old versions of gl2ps, but it was fixed in gl2ps 1.3.8 or 1.3.9. Are you using an old gl2ps?

plotting with pcolor/imagesc and colorbar renders to a buggy colorbar, if pdflatex device is selected.

Moreover, axis labels disappear too (out of frame).
