Please read how to report bugs. In particular, please don't report bugs 
of outdated R versions!

I guess the bug has been fixed by a couple of changes how text in 
margins is drawn. Please try R-2.0.1 beta and tell us whether the bug is 
still persistent. In that case, please provide a simple reproducible 
example (we cannot reproduce the example above!).
