[R] can't get text to appear over individual panels in multi-panel plot

I neglected to say that I am using the R-Aqua interface and the MASS, 
grid, & lattice packages.

Here is one specific example where I'm having trouble.

After loading the crabs data set, I create the figure with the 
following code (which is taken from MASS):

splom(~lcrabs.pc[,1:3] | sp*sex,cex=0.5,pscales=0)

The figure is plotted in the Quartz window: everything looks OK except 
for the lack of text above the individual panels.
