While there is an x-axis set up for:
> plot.factor(factor(1:3))

this axis is not present for
> plot.factor(factor(1:3), col="red")

which actually should just be the same as the first plot and call
barplot(table(.)), shouldn't it?  Where did the ticks and labels go?

Note that
> barplot (table(factor(1:3)), col="red")
has the x-axis.

Something funky is going on with axisnames or args in plot.factor that
I can't figure out.  The situation can be remedied with
> plot.factor(factor(1:3), col="red", axes=TRUE)

alas, why do you need "axes=TRUE"?
