I had the same problem (on R2.1.0 on Win XPSP2), let me just add, in case it
is of any help:

1) that even when the plot works in 2.1.0 it takes much longer than in
R2.0.1

2) this is worse if plot(x,type="l") is used (17sec versus 1sec for the
type="l" plot with a vector of length 15000)
example follows:

x=rnorm(15000)

date() plot(x) date() plot(x,type="l") date()

I obtained, in R2.1.0

> date()

[1] "Thu May 05 12:52:04 2005"

> plot(x)

> date()

[1] "Thu May 05 12:52:05 2005"

> plot(x,type="l")

*> date()
*

[1] "Thu May 05 12:52:22 2005"

in R2.0.1

> date()

[1] "Thu May 05 12:52:58 2005"

> plot(x)

> date()

[1] "Thu May 05 12:52:59 2005"

> plot(x,type="l")

*> date()
*

[1] "Thu May 05 12:53:00 2005"
