the first one works ,because 2^2=4 is the maximum of the function.
but in the second case 2^2<5! Choose an interval of -3...3 and
everything is okay.
\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{pstricks-add}
\def\ftnA{x 2 exp}
\def\ftnB{x 2 exp neg 5 add}
\begin{document}
\begin{pspicture}(-2,-0.5)(2,6)
\begin{psclip}{%
\psplot[linestyle=none]{-3}{3}{\ftnA}
\psplot[linestyle=none]{3}{-3}{\ftnB}}
\psframe*[linecolor=blue](-2,0)(2,5)
\end{psclip}
\psaxes[subticks=0,labelFontSize=\footnotesize]{->}(0,0)(-2,-0.5)(2,6)
\psplot{-2}{2}{\ftnA}
\psplot{-2}{2}{\ftnB}
\end{pspicture}
\end{document}
