[R] legend: interplay between title and y.intersp

Set the legend position explicitly with x and y values and add xpd = TRUE
to the legend call to clip the plot to the figure region and not the plot
region (the default). Something like this (you may have to fool around with
y.intersp, etc. to allow enough space between the legend lines):

plot(c(0,1), c(0,1), type="n")

legend(x = .4, y = 1.25, legend=c("", "", "a"), col=c("blue", "red",
"green"), xpd = TRUE, lty = 1, y.intersp= .75, title = 'test')
