A surprising side remark is that
(close (make-pipe-output-stream "gnuplot script"))
produces just the desired result (clisp prompt + open plot window)!

when I type "gnuplot script" at a shell prompt (on winnt4sp3 as well
as any real OS), I get a plot window and the next shell prompt
immediately. (so that I can type 'ls' and get the directory listing
and right click on the gnuplot plot window and print it and whatnot).
The upshot: under shell, "gnuplot script" returns immediately, as far
as the shell is concerned.
When I type (shell "gnuplot script") at the CLISP prompt, I also get
the plot window immediately, but I do not get the next CLISP prompt
until I close the plot window.
The upshot: under CLISP, "gnuplot script" blocks and does not return
until explicitly terminated.
This is quite annoying, and I would say that this is a bug, just as a
way to justify a request for a fix. :-)
