calls an example of   text( ... , xpd = NA) 
which *did* work in earlier versions of R till 0.99, but has stopped
working since 1.0.0.
Only the global value, par("xpd"), is used to decide if text is clipped.

A simple example is

  plot(1); text(1,1.44,"BLA", col = "blue", cex = 2, xpd=F)

Also, ?text  doesn't mention the  xpd and 2 other parameters that
text.default explicitly has.

I'm about to try to fix this for 1.1.1
