Hey, I've been using R for several years and I just upgraded my system and all of a sudden I'm getting the above message. Here it is again

Error in X11(display, width, height, pointsize, if (is.null(gamma)) 1 else gamma, :

        invalid 'width' or 'height'

I get it on two computers, one on AMD64 and one on x86, both running Gentoo unstable. If I do ?x11 and type in the default usage thingy, it works perfectly well. I.E.:

     X11(display = "", width = 7, height = 7, pointsize = 12,
         gamma = getOption("gamma"), colortype = getOption("X11colortype"),
         maxcubesize = 256, bg = "transparent", canvas = "white",
         fonts = getOption("X11fonts"), xpos = NA, ypos = NA)

works. Similarly, calling x11 with width and height of 7 works fine. The locale of my computer is UTF8 but that hasn't changed since the upgrade and it was working well before. Does anyone know what might be going on? Any help is appreciated, thanks! I've tried searching both the Gentoo and R help.
