Thanks for your time, this is the answer I was looking
I would say that R is rather bad at calculating the
in this case - it seems to not understand the basic
ratio of the plot. But, knowing this, fixing it is
it was the vague feeling that I must be doing
that was bugging me.
A nice work-around would be a bit of R that invokes GS
and then splices the correct bounding box into the
.eps automatically. I may attempt this sometime...

In both cases, R is not that good at calculating the

will often include a lot of white space. (In this
case it looks as
though it is believing the values passed in the
with other args to the postscript device it will do
other things.) I
generally use GSview's PS to EPS function to
recalculate it when this
sort of thing matters.
