Have you made sure that your points fit on the display? The following works for me (note: I'm using Jim Lemon's well-known penchant for eschewing the spacebar):

testlen<-rnorm(24)*2+5
testpos<-0:23+rnorm(24)/4
clock24.plot(testlen,testpos,show.grid=FALSE,line.col=3) clock24.plot(testlen[7:19],testpos[7:19],point.col=4,rp.type="s",point.symbol=16,cex=3,add=TRUE) par('usr')
#[1] -8.786689 8.786689 -8.786689 8.786689 points(3,4,pch=19,col=2,cex=3)
