PLOT procedure (was: Julian Day Numbers)

One real gotcha with Julian day numbers is if you try to use them for a 
time axis on a plot.

It works fine for long time axes, but if you try looking at high-resolution 
data things look really messy.

The problem is that PLOT converts to single-precision before converting 
coordinates to data and this means that all values are truncated to the 
nearest quarter day (for IEEE floats).
