Actually (on account of Mac excluding root files from searches, I think) I 
missed the existence of the binary

        /opt/local/bin/gnuplot (there is no gnuplot_x11)

which was maybe what was called by GNUmed because post-installation I got a 
different status line result

        18:15 Cannot save result. Invalid or missing essential input

and the last line in my log file is

        2011-05-01 18:15:15 DEBUG gm.forms 
 #818): plotting args: ['gnuplot', '-p', 


1) I did only have a single value selected in the Measurements table… would 
*that* have caused the "Invalid or missing essential input"?

2) if not, and if all we need to do is to help GNUmed call the proper binary, 
shall I simply overwrite


with a copy of gnuplot_x11 (but calling it gnuplot) ??
