[R-SIG-Mac] Small issue rendering on a Quartz device

Hi there A.R.,

I'll confirm that this happens in R 2.8.x and 2.9.x versions on OS X 10.5, but
it surely must be a well known issue.  My students ask me about it all the time,
and I just encourage them to resize their windows when they notice the problem,
and that is a temporary fix.
