[Rd] X11 image problem in R-2.8.0 Under development / R-2.7

I apologize if this is too obscure to reproduce, or some idiosyncratic 
aspects of my system. If I create a plot, e.g.,

 > plot(1:10)

I get a graphics device as expected. I then click on the 'zoom' box on 
my X11 window, so the window expands to occupy the entire screen. The 
plot is redrawn at the scale of the large window, but is clipped to the 
   'unzoomed' size. I only see the top left portion of the plot, 
occupying the space of the original image.

Here are the R essentials; I'm using X11 on a recent SuSE, connecting 
via a moderately out-of-date cygwin from Windows. I'm happy to provide 
more detail if pointed in the right direction (and will trouble shoot 
myself if this is not a general problem).
