This would explain why it only turn up when I combine both many points AND a
shaded area from the smoother. 

Arguments against it: 

Why is it only a problem with pch=16 (the dot), and everything else works?
(or, maybe the error turns up with more points?).

Why is it not more frequently observed in ggplot2, where shading is used
more often (the algorithm is from ggplot2 anyway).

And, strangest of all: I by design tried some integer-overlapping
coordinates with rnunif, and could not create a non-working example.

And Foxit can do it? I will try on Linux
