from the man page:
"The program can be run interactively or non-interactively. The user can run
the program completely non-interactively by specifying the name of a graphics
file containing the d.graph graphics commands. If run non-interactively the
d.graph command is saved to the display's dedraw history."

d.out.file requires the instructions to be listed in the display monitor's
history (d.save). The same goes for surviving d.redraw.

For it to act otherwise it would need to save the stdin info to a .tmp file,
like d.text does. The .tmp file sticks around until you restart GRASS.

So to get d.out.file to draw your d.graph stuff, use d.graph input=.
