[R] Problem with logarithmic axes labelling

Dear R-helpers!

Using logarithmic axes sometimes results in an odd labelling.
In some cases, only half of the axes do have labels. Hmmmm.
I've played around with par(lab=c(5,5,7)) but that didn't help.

An example:

---- begin example ----

x <-  c(0.12,  0.3,   0.53,  1.1,   1.8,  2.6, 4.5)
y <-  c(0.012, 0.021, 0.032, 0.055, 0.1,  0.2, 0.35)

plot(x, y,
     main="Problem with axes labelling on logarithmic scales",
     xlab="x, why aren't 0.5, or even smaller tic-values displyed?",
     ylab="y, why isn't 0.05 diplayed?")

---- end example ------

I've submitted this a while ago as a bug (#1235) but now, I rather think
it's just a little setting that has to be adjusted. But which...

Thanks for looking into my problem.
