@Pantxo: That patch works fine.  I pushed it here https://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/c40b3b671513.

Following a suggestion by Pantxo, the correct output can be obtained by using the vector-based "-painters" option to print.

However, it shouldn't be necessary if the -opengl option were really WYSIWYG.

Printing a figure with dashed lines does not reproduce the figure that is seen onscreen.  In the printed version the dashes are very small and close together.  This is a regression from 4.4.1, and interestingly does not affect the FLTK toolkit.  That is odd since both the qt and fltk toolkit use gl2ps for backend printing.

Sample code to reproduce:

demo line 1
print tst.png

Attached are plots made with 4.4.1 and the current stable branch.
