[R] Silhouette plot labels in package cluster

Hello everybody:

I have just started using R, specifically the clustering packages. Despite
the vastness of the functionality of the system, I have found it very
flexible and intuitive. It has been great fun to experiment with it.
Nevertheless, I am under tight time constraints to complete a cluster
analysis of some data and need to come up with a "quick" solution for the
following problem:  When I call the plot() function with a pam.object and
try to write labels for the individual objects in the silhouette plots,
rather than the object number, it appears that the length of the strings
allowed for the labels is limited to 5 characters. Is this an intrinsic
limitation? Is there a way to work around this limitation?

Thank you very much for your help and thanks for a great piece of software!
