It is a bit difficult for us to help you, as we've only got to R 1.8.1 and
are unskilled in time travel.  But in that version the most obvious thing,

barplot(1:5, space=0, col="red", border="red")

works.  Perhaps it will get broken at some time in the future?

[If perchance you meant R 1.5.1, you are well overdue for an update as
there have been 7 releases since.]
