Strictly this is correct:
...: additional parameters passed to the default method, or by it
to 'plot' and 'axis' to control the appearance of the plot.
Note, not title(), and plot() is called with ann=FALSE. So the fix is to
call title() separately.
It should now be safe to pass '...' to title() (it used not to be) so I'll
add this a a new feature in 2.8.0.
