[R] Postscript output encoding on Windows

With R 2.3.1 on Windows, I've noticed that it defaults to the "WinAsci.enc" encoding, which throws up an error when viewed with the default install of GhostScript/GSView (versions 8.51/4.7 respectively). I didn't have this problem prior to upgrading to 2.3.1 as I can view all my old PS graphs and they don't have the WinAsci encoding. I've got around this problem by adding encoding="CP1251.enc" to the postscript call but it seems a little bizarre that the default WinAsci wasn't working.

Any ideas what the problem might be? A problem with Ghostscript, a bug in R, or something strange about my installation (there shouldn't be)?? Should WinAsci be the default?

Thanks,

    Jamie
