Thanks Allen,
my R installation:

platform       i686-pc-linux-gnu
arch           i686
os             linux-gnu
system         i686, linux-gnu
major          2
minor          11.1
year           2010
month          05
day            31
svn rev        52157
language       R

version.string R version 2.11.1 (2010-05-31)

and Cairo:
Package: Cairo
Version: 1.4-5

I have the problem with both, svg() and CairoSVG()

Yes, I guess I could increase the canvas size until I can see all labels and then move them around in inkscape. I was just wondering if there was a better way of doing this as it seems like a rather hacky solution for what must be a very common problem. Particularly frustrating if you can see the desired result in the x11 device but you can't export it to a high-quality format.
