Thanks, Herbert

Should have spotted that one. *Darn* that Mathematica output ...

Incidentally, why did plotstyle=dots fail where plotstyle=curve
succeeded in the dataplot examples?

distinctly odd, especially in the case of \dataplot. Is this a bug or a
feature? The file test1.dat was exported from mathematica, whereas
test2.dat is a cleaned version of the same file.

your values are separated by a tab character, which is ignored
by PostScript.
Convert this one to a space or ,

e.g. for Linux:

tr '\t' ' ' < test1.dat > test11.dat

then it works.
