I got this problem, too, and I do not know how it happens. You may install 
'gnuplot' with one of the alternative ways of running the gnuplot 
$ cabal install -fexecutePipe gnuplot

Recently I changed the package such that gnuplot is no longer started with 
the -persist option. Instead I run it concurrently using Haskell's forkIO. 
Since that change the terminal keeps echoing. You may download the latest 
development version by

$ darcs get http://code.haskell.org/gnuplot/
