[R] plot(...,type='h') and the pdf driver don't play nice

With R 1.6.1 on NT, if I do 

   plot(1:10, type='h', lwd=10)

nice rectangular boxes emerge. But in the case of 

   pdf("foo.pdf"); plot(1:10, type='h', lwd=10); dev.off()

the boxes have (IMHO at least) ugly rounded edges. Is that intentional?

Thanks, Dirk
