[R] axis range problem

plot() is producing plots whose y-axis range is much larger than the range
of the data. This happens when I plot a subset of the data.

The dataset I am using is pretty big: length(x) is 107008. When I do
the plot uses a y-axis whose range is range(y) instead of the range of y
values plotted (corresponding to xlim).
I fix this by adding the argument
ylim=range(y[x>=min(xrange) & x<=max(xrange)])

It seems to me that this would be a more sensible default behaviour.
