[R] overly light printing HP 8000

Points, axes and  axes labels on graphs  printed from R are very
light- almost unreadable.  I am using the gui interface on the windows
version to print the plot on the screen to an HP 8000 set as a postscript
printer or PCL printer; the postscript output is light and the PCL output
is very light. If I specify lwd =2 in the plot command, the lines are
readable, but the points (open circles, in this case) also appear to have
been generated with thick pen.

If I start a postscript device, generate the plot, and print it, the output
quality is good.

I've played with the printer settings, to no avail. Generating the same
plot and printing from the gui in Splus results in readable output.
