Subject: R-alpha: Bounding box wrong in PS device.

Here's an easy one for you:

When printing in landscape, x's and y's needs to be swapped in
%%BoundingBox. (As I discovered trying to put a plot in a TeX

And width and height parameters to postscript() don't do a thing, but
I suppose that doesn't come as a surprise.

BTW: How are you supposed to turn the graphics device OFF? (as
dev.off() in Splus) Postscript() will close x11() and vice versa, but
that hardly seems to be the proper way??

And while we're at it: deleting the X11 window with the window manager
and then writing to it kills R with a "Broken pipe" on Linux. I guess
SIGPIPE needs to be caught?
