I had this problem last fall. It went away after a while, and I 
believe the "fix" was an OS version upgrade.
Later, I was sending PDF files created with R to a colleague. When I 
viewed them, the labels were there.
When he viewed them on his computer, they were not displayed. He 
upgraded his OS, after which they
were displayed.

Here is my version information, and note that I have a later version 
of the OS (10.3.8).

>  version
platform powerpc-apple-darwin6.8.5
arch     powerpc                 
os       darwin6.8.5             
system   powerpc, darwin6.8.5    
major    2                       
minor    0.1                     
year     2004                    
month    11
