Here you are talking about S-PLUS 4.x. That `trick' is not needed on any
other S-PLUS platform, not even on earlier versions of S-PLUS for Windows.
Only with a graphsheet device in S-PLUS 4.x is (plot) output deferred.  I
don't see it is relevant to R.

BTW, as we now many versions of R for Windows (and are about to have some
more) could you please say which?
