[R] White background in PS pictures

Hi all

I am using R to produce postscript pictures via the
postscript  command.  I have never had any problems...
until now, when I want to inlcude my .ps file is a
LaTeX document *without* a white background.  (If
it's important, I'm using the  prosper  class with
the  whitecross option, so the background in blue.)

I would like my .ps file to have a white background.
If I read the help correctly (?postscript), this is
achieved using  bg="white", either in the call to
postscript  or via  ps.options.

However, whenever I do so, and include my .ps
file in my LaTeX document, it appears transparent
(I see the blue background, and the black text on the
figure is hard to read.)

I have read the help (at least what I thought was relevant)
and searched the mail archives but can't find any
reference to this problem.

Help appreciated.
