Yes, this I new, and what I wanted was to have the horizontal range
displayed from 0 to 1.  I thought that using {t,0,1} was precisely
supposed to accomplish that (it indeed does it if I don't specify any
PlotRange), and not from 0 to about 0.53, as I described in my initial
message.

Now, using 2 ranges in PlotRange, as you suggest (this, I didn't know)
does want I want:

Plot[Exp[-10000 t^2], {t, 0, 1}, PlotRange -> {{0, 1}, {-.5, 1}}];

So I still have the question: is it normal that Mathematica can overrule my
{t,tmin,tmax} specification.  Besides, if, e.g., I use {t,1,2} with
PlotRange -> {-.5,1}, then the horizontal axis is indeed displayed
from 1 to 2 (and this was the first time in years that this happened
to me).  In other words, is there a way to know in advance, for a
given choice of {t,tmin,tmax}, what is the {t,tmmamin,tmmamax} Mathematica is
going to use, and what is the rationale behind that.

Many thanks, David.
