[R] Changing strip widths in lattice plots

Hello R users,

I'm using xyplot (lattice) to plot some data. Unfortunately, the text that goes 
into each strip is often too big to fit. For instance, one of the factors may 
be labelled "Satisfaction with waiting time" which is too wide to fit. If I use 
split.string() to wrap it onto two lines it is then too high to fit in the 
strip. I'd prefer to apply split.string on the fly than manually shorten each 
offending label.

I thought I could try
   1. making the strip wider (in the y direction) or
   2. removing it altogether and adding the strip text with ltext()

strip.default seemed a good place to look. I commented out any rect() 
statements, but the strips were still drawn. Could someone please tell me where 
to look for adjusting the strip width (or removing it entirely).

Thank you very much for your help!
