Just got trapped by inconsistency of name of first argument for file-based graphics devices. Both 'file' and 'filename' are currently in use depending on the device. I ran on a machine without PNG support which my code used postscript as the backup device and choked here.

> do.call(device, list(filename = pathname,

                       height = height,
                       width = width))
