Thank you for the bug report!

It also crashes on our Solaris platform, and with the newest "developers"
However, *only* when no device has been created previously in the current R
session, i.e., PREpending 

	par("usr") ;

to your three commands gives the correct error message
  >>> Error in par(args) : parameter "tck" has the wrong length


Remark / Question :

 I think I would rather not have my students use low-level functions such
 as  and  plot.window()...

 Is there a reason they need these instead of  plot()/lines()/.... etc ?
