Hi Vincent,

I have plotted a double line like this:

vlines my_lines
    color yellow
    width 1.5
    label Chirp lines
    lpos 4
    style 000111

vlines my_lines
    color black
    width 3
    label Chirp lines
    lpos 4
    style 000111

The top entry in the file plots on top in the map.  This gives a black 
dotted line with a yellow middle.  Specifying the same legend position 
recreates the pattern in the legend.
