I had used this bit of code before and received the desired plot (the code was not identical, but very similar; perhaps more importantly I was working with an older version of R) . Now the panels appear right to left instead of left to right, as it says in the help files, which is what I would like. Does anyone know if this has been changed? OR has anybody encountered this problem and a way of fixing it?

I haven't noticed if anything's been changed. However, you can always explictly define the panel order by setting the levels of your grouping variable (i.e. ctry_pfi in your case). See ?factor.
