I guess you're talking about Goffice Graph.

Looking at gnucash-gnome2-dev branch, it seems to use a snapshot of
Goffice Graph from the last stable version of gnumeric.

You probably want to use the standalone library you can find in the
goffice module on It has some crasher fixes. An unstable
release is planned.
