The added support for semi-transparent colours in `windows' under R-2.6.0 for Windows is much appreciated.

However, I've discovered that issuing a `layout' (or `par' with arguments `mfcol'/`mfrow') call and then trying to plot several figures with semi-transparent colour on the same page results in only the first one being fully drawn. E.g.

> x <- rnorm(10000)
> y <- rnorm(10000)
> layout(matrix(1:2, ncol = 2))
> plot(y ~ x, pch = 16, col = rgb(1, 0, 0, 0.15))
> plot(y ~ x, pch = 16, col = rgb(1, 0, 0, 0.15))

results in the second one having only the axes and box, but no data points. This is under
