I should have added that the plot was generated with log="xy". On my
computer, this simple example recreates the problem:
> postscript("tmp.ps", width=6, height=6, family="Times")
> plot((1:10)^2, (1:10)^3, log="xy")
With this simple plot function, I get 2 x-axis tick marks and 1 y axis
tick mark, but the expected number of axis labels.
Sorry for the ommission,
