Is the behavior of "hist" in this sample of code correct.  On my system 
(Windows 2K, SP2) the first and second bars are pushed together, while the 
3rd, 4th, and 5th bars are correctly positioned.

The function "truehist" gives the correct representation of the data.

Am I missing an option in hist or is there a bug?

This appears in 1.4.1 as well as the "unstable" version 1.5.0.
