The following code shows that the legend is misplaced when a title is included AND xlim specifies a decreasing x axis.

matplot(1:5, matrix(rnorm(5*3), nrow=5), type="l", col=1:3, lty=1, lwd=3,

legend("bottomleft", col=1:3, lty=1, legend=paste("line", letters[1:3]))
legend("topleft", col=1:3, lty=1, legend=paste("line", letters[1:3]),

legend("bottomright", col=1:3, lty=1, legend=paste("line", letters[1:3])) legend("topright", col=1:3, lty=1, legend=paste("line", letters[1:3]), title="Hello")
