The 'fillOddEven' parameter is indeed a recent addition to the R-2.10 series:


Something really odd is happening on our Windows build nodes: when calling
png() here, we get something like:

   Error in png("somefile.png") :
     invalid value of 'fillOddEven'

But when checking the man page for png() or looking at the code of the
function, I don't see any 'fillOddEven' argument!

I need to investigate more.
