The original offending case now looks good and so does the new demo.

Closing report as fixed.

This turned out to be a much more involved patch as there were a lot of corner cases.  I checked in a fix here: http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/1aa0456ecb18.

Marking as Ready for Test.

Steps to reproduce:

hp = plot (1:10, 'marker', '.', 'markersize', 15);
hleg = legend ('legend_text', 'location', 'north');

Trouble seems to be that legend.m enforces a maximum markersize of 8 in the legend key, but the '.' marker is specifically ~1/3rd of other marker sizes so it is quite small at a limit of 8.

Should have a patch soon.
