[R] trivial axis question?

probably there's some parameter I don't know how to set.
Using R 0.64 on a Sun sparc, I use the following command

axis(1, at=xspos(times), labels=result, cex.axis=0.7)
where result is sth. like  c("May", "Jun" ,"Jul" ,"Aug", "Sep", ...)
Now it plots it fine.. but when two xspos are too (?) close together
the label gets dropped. That's probably a feature to save
the user from overwriting two entries. E.g. I have an x-axs May Jul Aug
(ommitting the Jun entry).
Can I manually force R -- to write all xais entries -- independent
of overlap, etc. -- or is there a vlaue where I can set the threshold
I can set to tell R when to write and when not to write?
Thanks for your time,
