The default colors for gnuplot changed, and bugscan[1] wasn't specifying
them explicitely.

As I'm not an expert on selecting color palettes, I've just specified
the defaults of gnuplot explicitely, and I've indicate in the HTML the
precise colors that are used[2].

This should be updated the next time that bugscan is run (in the next
few hours or so.)
