For what is worth, I can reproduce the bug on the folloiwng system : v6.0.2 on a Mac (Mac OS X 10.5.2) Intel (64-bit); but not on this one : v6.0.2 on a PC (Windows XP SP2) Intel (32-bit). I have used the "large" list and the shorter one (5 elements) and the variations of the plot command. Regards, -- Jean-Marc
