[Rd] legend() in a multiple figure environment

Dear all,

there seems to be a problem with displayed legends when a multiple
figure environment is used, see the following example:


On my machines the first time the command legend() is issued the
legend box stretches over the curve. Subsequent calls to legend seems
to produce a correct box instead.

openSuse 11.0

platform       x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
arch           x86_64
os             linux-gnu
system         x86_64, linux-gnu
status         Patched
major          2
minor          8.1
year           2009
month          01

svn rev        47501
language       R
version.string R version 2.8.1 Patched (2009-01-07 r47501)

I see this on the same version of R on Windows VISTA 32 bit as well; I
do not see this behaviour on a machine with R 2.8.0.

Thank you,
