I'm afraid that you've found a bug in plot.effect(): I omitted specifying 
the xlab argument to xyplot() in one of the six cases that plot.effect() 
distinguishes. The fix is simple, and I'll shortly upload a new version of 
the package with it, but in the meantime, I'll send you (privately) the 
fixed version of plot.effect().

I apologize for the problem,
