[R] problem with xaxt="n"

Dear All,

Under WinNT4.0sp5 using the binaries downloaded from CRAN (version 1.0.0),
if I want to do a plot without the tick-marks and numbers on the x-axis,
the following:

> x <- rnorm(10)
> y <- rnorm(10)
> plot(x, y, xaxt="n")

does not give what I expect, i.e. it gives the same than "plot(x, y)".
However, the following works:

> par(xaxt="n")
> plot(x, y)

(i.e. nothing but the "x" label on the x-axis). Note that with version
0.99.0 the first bit of code works fine. I have seen nothing related to a
change in setting xaxt in the annoucement files. I do not have R installed
on another OS down here, so I cannot say if it is OS-related or not.
