The old Quartz didn't have the ability to show plot content in live  
resize, so it was using that text as a filler. The new Quartz device  
is able to provide a preview so it doesn't need that kludge anymore  
(and it has many other new features).

We could add that information, I wasn't aware it was any useful - it  
was really just a hack ...
