Actually, the code is supposed to do something slightly different: in
Log-Mode, Auto-Range, the minimum of the range is supposed to be the
minimum point larger than zero (Vector::minPos() ).  And if you use
the keyboard to enter this mode, it seems to reliably work ('g', 'm').
 The issue appears to be selecting log mode from the plot dialog.
But, as Nicolas has confirmed, 'm' fixes it.  So somehow the
re-calculation of ranges is not happening from the plot dialog.  I
thought I found it (it fixed it for me) but apparently there is still
an issue.

I hope to work on it today or tomorrow.
