[Maxima] plot2d Issue

I'm new to this list, but I've been using Maxima in my work for about
I'm having a problem using plot2d in a manner that I've used it before,
and I can't seem to understand what I'm doing wrong. Perhaps one of you
can see my mistake.
I have a simple, inverse quadratic that I want to display along with a
series of discrete data points. The quadratic is:
deltaX(a,b,c,dA):= (a / dA^2) + (b / dA) + c;
and there is a series of constants named:
dA_1 ... dA_6
dX_1 ... dX_6
I'm trying to display both the function curve and the discrete points,
and so I'm calling plot2d as follows:
[gnuplot_curve_styles, ["with line", "with points"]]
When I run it, I get the following error:
"Unknown plot option specified: Astep"
If I eliminate the discrete points, it works and displays the curve. If
I eliminate the curve, it displays the discrete points. I've used
nearly identical code before without any issues. Yet here, I'm getting
an error. Can anyone see anything wrong?
By the way, I'm currently running Maxima 18.104.22.168rc2.
