Dear all
I've just tried the brand new 'grdevice' option in Sweave but couldn't
make it work. When I declare


trying to plot something simple
<<fig=T, echo=T>>=
plot(1:10,1:10,main='Some title')

would result in an Sweave error:
18:16:47.299:  1 : term verbatim
18:16:47.308:  2 : echo term verbatim pdf pdf
18:16:47.391: Error in dev(name = chunkprefix, width = options$width,
height = options$height,  :
18:16:47.392:   unused argument(s) (name = chunkprefix)
18:16:47.393: Calls: Sweave -> <Anonymous> -> dev

Error: Cannot convert file
An error occurred while running:

If I comment out the statement

the compilation proceeds as expected. Hoping that it gets through, I'm
attaching the Sweave file. Am I doing something wrong?
