That change has been checked into gnuplot, so for the case of
shell-command, the
gnuplot end of the problem should be fixed.  It remains somewhat
worrying, though, that Emacs would be so irresponsive while waiting for
the subprocess to end --- not that many newbies would have known to try
Ctrl-G to break it out of its busy-looping state.
