Fixed on the development branch in this cset: https://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/a7dfb00d5bf5.

This will be a part of the Octave 6.1 release.  To access the fix sooner download axis.m from the Mercurial development branch and replace your local copy.

Closing report.

The following script

x = -1:0.01:1;
y = x;
plot(x, y);
xlim([-0.2, 0.2]);
ylim([-0.5, 0.5]);

causes the figure to clear after the "axis equal" command is invoked.

Closed bug https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?49755 corrected the issue "axis equal clears plot". But, if we invoke the "xlim/ylim" command  before invoking the "axis equal" command, the "axis equal" command still causes the figure to clear.
