You haven't told us the graphics device or OS used, nor it seems have you
taken account of
CHANGES IN R VERSION 2.7.0
SIGNIFICANT USER-VISIBLE CHANGES
o Considerable efforts have been made to make the default output
from graphics devices as similar as possible (and in
particular close to that from postscript/pdf). Many devices
were misinterpreting 'pointsize' in some way, for example as
being in device units (pixels) rather than in points.

Define 'correctly'! For example, as I recall the X11 device in 2.6.1 was
not working as documented except on 75dpi and 100dpi screens.

That line does not work correctly for me under either. I think
data=InsetSprays is missing.

Well, you set it, so you seem to have set it incorrectly. It is two lines
wide on all the devices I tried in 2.7.1.

Nor do we, but RTFM failure seems implicated.
