[R] sourcing a file with the plot.lme() function

I ran into a problem trying to make a plot from a file that's read using
source.  Basically, I have the following code in a file "plot.R" :

fm1 <- nlme(height ~ SSasymp(age, Asym, R0, lrc),
            data = Loblolly,
            fixed = Asym + R0 + lrc ~ 1,
            random = Asym ~ 1,
            start = c(Asym = 103, R0 = -8.5, lrc = -3.3))

This code is taken from the help page for 'nlme'.  If I cut an paste this
code into the console, everything works as expected.  However, if I try to
execute the code by calling source("plot.R") the plot is never made.  Has
anyone seen this?
