It would appear to me that there is a bug in the postscript device
when multiple pages are required.  Line widths can be only 1 after the
first page.  I have not seen reference to this as a problem before.

test.device <-
#  looks like the problem is in the postscript device
       postscript(file = paste("Test.ps"), horizontal = F)
       par(mai = rep(1, 4), lwd = 12)    
    for(j in 1:3) {
       plot(1:10, 11:20)
       title(paste("Testing  .... Page", j), line = -1, cex = 1.5)

The above code does not have a problem in Splus 3.4.

It makes no difference in R if the lwd parameter is set in the plotting
call itself.  

Has anyone a work around apart from doing separate plots for each
