[Rd] serializing recordedplot object

I use recordPlot() to save plots to disk that I render later to a variety of formats. This works fine for base R plots and ggplot2 plots, and also used to work for lattice plots. However somewhere in version 2.14 things stopped working for lattice plots. Here is an example:

library(lattice);
histogram(rnorm(100));
x <- recordPlot();
saveRDS(x, "myplot.rds");
y <- readRDS("myplot.rds");
print(y);
Error: NULL value passed as symbol address

printing x works fine, but printing y either gives an error or prints an empty page. The problem seems to be related to serializing the recordedplot object, which contains a lot of memory pointers. Any tips or workarounds?
