[R] Odd gridding pattern when plotting

" Images for large z on a regular grid are more efficient with useRaster
enabled and can prevent rare anti-aliasing artifacts, but may not be
supported by all graphics devices. "
Adding useRaster=TRUE to the two image() calls gets rid of the white grid
lines.

Subject: [R] Odd gridding pattern when plotting
Hi, I'm no longer on the subscribing list, but was hoping to get my question
posted. Please inform if this is ok, although I am guessing you wont post
with the image below. If so, let me know and I will resend without the
image.
Thanks
Hi,
I just upgraded my system and my version of R all at once. Upon running old
code for heatmaps etc, I suddenly notice that there is an odd grid pattern
appearing in all of my plots. An example is below:
#example from ?image
require(grDevices) # for colours
x <- y <- seq(-4*pi, 4*pi, len=27)
r <- sqrt(outer(x^2, y^2, "+"))
image(z = z <- cos(r^2)*exp(-r/6), col=gray((0:32)/32))
image(z, axes = FALSE, main = "Math can be beautiful ...",
xlab = expression(cos(r^2) * e^{-r/6}))
contour(z, add = TRUE, drawlabels = FALSE)
Any ideas what is causing this? I can't seem to figure it out. I'm not
sure the bmp image can/will be posted, so maybe you can just take my word
for it. It is a gridding pattern in white, that appears over the plot area
only. Vertical lines are every 4 units, evenly spaced. Horizontal lines
appear at every unit, then stop for a while (6-7 units, then appear every
unit for 4-5 units). Simple plots like plot(x,y) do not seem to produce it,
or at least I can't see it. Any ideas are helpful.
Thanks!
