`filled.contour' sets up a 2-by-1 grid (for colormap and image) using the `layout' function, hence a prior setup of a multipanel layout would be (and is) destroyed by the `filled.contour' call.

you might edit a copy of `filled contour' to modify the `layout' call (e.g. to set up a 2-by-2 grid where only the upper row is used by the plots generated in filled contour). I tried this very shortly before answering but it seems that only 'within' the filled.contour copy one has access to the other subplots, after return from the function plot focus is again in subplot no. one --no time to check this further. in any case along this line one should be able to enforce multiple subplots where 2 of them are used by the modified `filled.contour'
