Sorry for causing this issue. The problem was very obscure. It was
related to table conversion during export. When using ox-ascii to export
Org table to Gnuplot-readable text file, ox-ascii sometimes threw an
error because of wrong calculation of cell width. So, I tried to use
ox-org instead. Apparently, ox-org cannot be used in that context (no
idea what went wrong though).

Now, I just put a quick (and incomplete) fix to ox-ascii and reverted
back to the old export approach.
