[R] plot() under Rserve

Rserve allows one to render plots into jpeg with R code such as:

   jpeg(filename, ...)

However, substituting png, tiff, or bmp device redirection fails on Rserve with "eval error" on OSX.

   png(filename, ...)

The above in an eval produces an error and sometimes faults the connection. I suspect that Rserve is run in a mode where certain graphics parameters or shared libraries are not available?

Has anyone tried to render with Rserve to a device other than jpeg? The Java client demo uses jpeg, but will fail if changed to png.
