[BioC] Diagnostic plots error

Hi Mike

Possibly not that much help, but I have encountered the "Figure margins too large" problem before, and it is what it says it is - basically something is trying to fit a graph or figure into an image (postscript in your case) that isn't big enough.  Somewhere, the code is setting the size of the postscript image output to be a certain size and your graph is bigger.  

I don't know maNormPlots() very well, but check the documentation to see if somehow you can play about with the image output size

Subject: [BioC] Diagnostic plots error

Took a few days, but I'm up to speed with R and Bioconductor.

I have the individual plots working via X11, but the diagnostic plots  
are causing me trouble.  I'm having a problem that I saw (in the  
mailing list archives) was related to the layout subroutine.

When I run the diagnostic plots, I get the following errors:

Error in plot.new() : Figure margins too large

Error in factor(z, levels = 1:nlevels(x), labels = levels(x), ordered =  
is.ordered(x)) :
         invalid labels; length 0 should be 1 or 2

Has this bug been investigated or is there a workaround?  Can anyone  
offer help?  Thanks.
