Excuse me, Partha, I misinterpreted your question/ statements
(and we *did* fix a bug here!) -- I'm feeling silly, really sorry...
but there *is* still a bug here :
The line break happens alright, but the two lines are not centered
properly, but rather "as a whole"
This is shown (somewhat more easily for cut&paste)
plot(0);title(expression(paste("Bad\n",mu," with much much more text")))
--> I send a bug report to R-bugs (unless there's one already there)
