[R] PNG files and the png function

I can use a postscript device to produce a file which I can open with
the Gimp, then save quite a good png file.

If I try to use the png() function directly, I get something rather
like a graphics screen dump.  The help file doesn't tell me whether it
should be like that or not.

platform i686-pc-linux-gnu
arch     i686             
os       linux-gnu        
system   i686, linux-gnu  
major    1                
minor    1.0              
year     2000             
month    June             
day      15               
language R                

All ideas welcome.

Thank you.
