Really the only way is to make sure that your nodes are plotted larger
(either from increasing the size of the plot device or using less
nodes).  What happens is that Rgraphviz will first try to display the
label at the default size, but if that would be too large it tries any
smaller font sizes available.  If none of them are small enough, instead
of plotting the node/label such that the label is too large for the node,
it gives the warning that you're seeing.
