How's this?
foo <- function(x,y,...) {
plot(x,y,type="n",...)
na <- apply(cbind(x,y),1,function(x){any(is.na(x))})
f <- c(na[-1],FALSE)
x <- x[!na]
y <- y[!na]
f <- f[!na]
n <- length(x)
f <- f[-n]
segments(x[-n],y[-n],x[-1],y[-1],lty=ifelse(f,3,1))
}
set.seed(42)
x <- sort(runif(20))
y <- rnorm(20)
ix <- sample(1:20,3)
iy <- sample(1:20,3)
x[ix] <- NA
y[iy] <- NA
foo(x,y)
cheers,
