I can't seem to get rid of the slightly green background when I use
dotplot().  It shows on the screen in the X11 device and when a
postscript file is viewed with the Gimp or GhostView.  Fortunately, it
is too faint to print on a Xerox colour printer.

However, if I attempt to make a monochrome bitmap file either using
bitmap(type = "pngmono") or converting a postscript file, it comes up
(and prints) as a very noticeable grey.  I've tried specifically
setting bg to "white" in every place I can think of, but without

The problem doesn't appear when using bwplot() which I'd have thought
had a lot in common.

Has anyone experience with such a problem?
