[R] plot slow?

I just installed R and am comparing it to other packages (such as Igor).  
So, you'll have to excuse me if this is a stupid question.  I run the
simple command:


And it seems SO slow!  Igor blasts through this.

My theory is that R is redrawing the screen for every point that's being 
graphed.  Is it possible to control how often R redraws a plot as its 
building it - or, is there some other trick here to speeding up plots with 
lots of points?
