[R] short plots: lwd, margin and postscript behavior

Hi all.
I'm working with a short plot (3x3 inches), but the results (via postscript command) are not nice. The lwd command don't affect the lines (that are very large) and the margins don't change using oma, mai, mar, ... Below I put an example. Moreover, save the graphics via postscript command isn't working well (see the attached ps).

Thanks by the help,

Cezar Freitas.

#Example:
#data

  scores<-c(2.0, 0.0, 5.0, 5.0, 5.0, 2.0, 0.0, 5.0, 2.5, 4.0, 5.0, 0.0, 5.0, 0.0, 2.0, 5.0, 5.0, 2.0, 3.0, 3.0)
  q<-summary(scores)
  gra<-hist(scores, breaks=((0:11)/2-.2), plot=FALSE)   yy<-ceiling(max(gra$counts)/10)*10
  yz<-yy/12

#plot via postscript

  postscript("test.ps", width=3, height=3, horizontal=FALSE, family="Times", paper="special")

  hist(scores, breaks=((0:11)/2-.2), xlim=c(-1,6), ylim=c(-yz,yy), main="scores", ylab="Freq", xlab="math", cex.axis=.3, cex.main=.3, cex.sub=.3, cex.lab=.3, mgp=c(1.5,.5,0))
  boxplot(scores, horizontal=1, add=1, at=-2*yz/3, boxwex=1.5*yz, bty="n", axes=FALSE)
  points(q[4], -2*yz/3, col=1, pch="+", cex=.5)

  dev.off()
