[R] postscript: can't center plot

One of our color postscript printers needs a slightly larger margin
than the default, so I'm trying to send slightly smaller graphics to
it, but all the extra margin I provide ends up at the right and
bottom of the page.

These are the relevant (I imagine) ps.options:

$paper      [1] "special"
$width      [1] 10
$height     [1] 8
$pagecentre [1] TRUE

I tried this on two systems, in two versions of R, and the output
is identical.
  linux: R 1.6.1 (2002-11-01)
  mips-sgi-irix6.5: R 1.6.1 Beta (2002-10-28)

I'll attach a postscript file, which is very simple but I think
shows the asymmetry I'm talking about.

I'll file a bug report if I should, but I thought I'd give y'all a
chance to confirm the behavior or tell me I'm going about this all
