hi karsten,

i don't know, if there is a direct solution to your problem,
but you could work around it by creating individual files for each
bond you are interested in, and then combine the files into a single
file. attached is a perl script that does the merging (should work
for general xy-data with the same x series).

if you want to automate the creation of the individual files, you
could (ab)-use the scripting capabilities of VMD. i'll also attach
an example tcl script, that i used recently to create several
similarly combined files of dihedral angles from a series of
simulations. of course you need to adapt this script for your
own setup (probably first get rid of the loop over all the simulations ;-)

hope this helps,
