bottom scale not adjusting

Telling the bottom scale to adjust doesn't seem to be working, unless I misunderstand something. See the picture.

Assuming your bottom axis is the date axis, it is behaving correctly.

The min and max values specified on that page regardless of the axis (top, left, bottom, right) are only applicable to data axes and not date axes. To change the date axis for non-frozen graphs you will have to use the graph slider. For frozen graphs, the range can only be changed in graphs that have automatic updating turned on (i.e. mygraph01.setupdate(auto) 1990 2010).

Arguably the settings for axes which are not being used (top, right, and bottom in your case) should be disabled to alleviate confusion.

Yes it is a date axis.

In this case, I'm not so sure that "correctly" and "as designed" mean the same thing.
