I believe the graphics overhaul is already done, and is included
in the R 0.62 release.  This problem may be caused by failure to
close the postscript device with dev.off() before viewing/printing.
I cannot reproduce your problem exactly but you can get strange
results (eg losing the last thing you added to the plot) with the
postscript device if you don't close it.
