The way gnuplot works with X11 is via an external program that handles
all the X11-specific stuff (creating windows and drawing in them).  It
looks like MAX_WINDOWS only matters in that program.  So are you sure
that gnuplot is running your modified version of gnuplot_x11 or is it
possible that it is still picking up the old version?  It looks like
gnuplot's x11 terminal driver uses execvp to start gnuplot_x11, so to
find a modified version of gnpulot_x11, it needs to be in your path
ahead of any other gnuplot_x11 binary.  Did you install your modified
version of gnuplot_x11 alongside your gnuplot in /home/ratts/bin?
