If indeed you used the bitmap() function, please read its help page.
The differences are very likely due to the installations of ghostscript
and nothing to do with R.

There never was an `R 1.6', but the current version of R is 1.8.1, so it 
looks as if an update is well overdue.

You cannot send binary attachments to R-help, so we can't see anything 
here.  In any case, .bmp is a strange choice for use on Unix systems: png 
would be much better for your readers here (but you would have to put them 
on a web site).
