Hi Allin,

I would urge a different perspective.  Here is why.

This is not just one possible back end.  This is the back end that
gretl uses to display it graphical output.  Thus the default face
of gretl to the Windows world looks less than professional when
it comes to the graphics.  I think that is more than unfortunate
for such a fine package.

I realize that this bug seems to lead outside of gretl, but I would
hope that it would at least produce a bug report that leads to
eventual action.  I've done about what I'm capable of in tracking
this, but I'm willing to follow other paths if you have suggestions.

Hope that makes sense,
