Fill plotting question

I have a climatology file defined on the following grid:

define axis/x=125:286.5:.25/units=longitude xc
define axis/modulo/t="6-jan:02:00":"26-dec:22:00"/np=36/t0="01-jan-0000" tc
define grid/x=xc/t=tc gc

If I shade a variable defined on this grid I get a plot that has a time axis
from January to December that is completely filled in (i.e. no blank space
inside the axis lines). However, if I contour or fill this same variable I get
a plot where the plotted information runs from "6-jan:02:00":"26-dec:22:00"
with the same time axis as the shade plot (January to December), with lots of
blank space inside the axis lines. I tried a bunch of different set region
commands and the closest I could come was when I set the region to l=35:73, in
which case the plotted information and the time axis in the plot also included
the leading December and trailing January (i.e. 14 months). The solution I came
up with was to explicitly set the region and the time axis limits thusly:

fill/ylimits=8785:17544 ct[l=35:73]

where ct is the variable I want to plot.

I am not that surprised at this behavior, but I would like to know if anyone
has a more elegant method of accomplishing this.

Thanks, Mark
