Some progress: (a,b)=(-0.75,-0.25) gives a non-repeating but apparently bounded collection of iterates.
Need to improve my gnuplot skills to colour the points in a comprehensible gradient from first point to last
(a,b)=(0.25,-0.75) results in a dense pattern
trouble is to show that it remains bounded...
