Dear Barry,

Thanks for your input, that is indeed a very good idea (shame on me not 
to have thought about it...).

As expected, it works fine on Windows XP, but crashes on Windows 7 at 
dev.off (which means that the svg file is correctly created, but R 
crashes every time, a bit annoying). This is therefore a devSVG problem 
on Windows 7.

Now, does anyone know how to fix this?
