Frank switched over to lattice so base-graphics arguments are not necessarily honored (unless they're shared with lattice::xyplot). So you need to think how you would specify the options in lattice::xyplot and then try to pass those arguments, since there is a "dots" mechanism. I tried finding a solution in Sarkar's Lattice book but didn't come up with anything. The "box" settings I found applied to bwplot "boxes".

(Not attempting example since no data offered. You might consider searching the archives.)
