Use the pdfcairo terminal to produce a pdf file directly:
I don't know why setting 'psfile' works, while
produces a truncated file, but it happens (5.27.0 gcl).
In case you want to add latex markup to your plots, I just noticed that
Gnuplot 4.6 now has a 'cairolatex' terminal which is like the older
epslatex terminal, but for pdf files.
