is an example in the -graph combine- help file
note that -gr_example2- is the command and combine5 is the option
 
The rotation of the labels actually changes the size of the histogram
plot region and hence the graphs do not slot together exactly (as it
did before)

Now I see - partially, at least (the well hidden command names inside
the help file still puzzle me).
 
Your main point, I think, is that you can only control the plot area
size and location indirectly. It is the graph area minus what happens
to be outside the plot area, and that can give troubles or
inconveniencies; combined graphs is one of the cases.
 
I agree, but I believe that there is not much hope for a change.
 
Cheers,
