[R-SIG-Mac] followup to quartz problem in 2.7.0 beta -- it is something in Acrobat?

Dear Simon and the R-Gui wizards,

Following up my post of last night, I tried the same sequence in the 
most recent release. The problem reoccurs, but seems to be a problem 
with the way Acrobat is interacting with the pdf file.

x <- 1:10
y <- x^2

This creates the new file Rplots.pdf.  When I open this with Acrobat, 
some of the points are missing.  The line is there. The scale size in 
Acrobat is 266%.  But if I rescale the Acrobat window down to 150% or 
less, the points come back,  but then disappear again if I rescale 
up.  (At a large scale you can drag the figure around.  Points come 
and go as you move the graph around!)

If I open the file with Preview,  the points are there to start with 
no matter what.
