    When tick marks are set by axis(), the default grid() does not always
    correspond with the tick marks, although the manual of grid() says:
    nx,ny: ... When `NULL', as per default, the grid aligns with the
           tick marks on the corresponding axis, when `NA', no grid
           lines are drawn in the corresponding direction.

    m <- 200; n <- 10; i <- 40
    plot( 1:n, sample( 1:m, n, T ), type='b', yaxt='n' )
    axis( side=2, at = seq( 0, m, i ), col='blue' )
    grid( col='red', lty=2 )
