Are you aware of a case where an explicit list is given to Plot
and it plots in a single color? My experience with Plot
indicates *everytime* I give Plot an explicit list as in

Plot[{a,b,c},{x,0,1}]

I get multiple colors. Note, any thing other than {a,b,c ...}
isn't an explicit list. Things that evaluate to lists plot in a
single color since Plot doesn't see them as lists.
