Yes, thank you, this fixes the problem for me.
As a follow-up, and again with my ignorance of where processing is
actually occuring, it seems like the X11 window content is drawn
directly rather than being drawn to a buffer and then blit on to the
screen -- the original appearance of the plot is slow, compared to,
e.g., hiding and then revealing the image once it has been plotted.
R version 2.8.0 Under development (unstable) (2008-04-05 r45102)
Thank you again for tracking down the original issue.
