Something seems to have broken mtext between the R-0.50-a1 and R-0.50-a4
releases. It prints OK when side=2 or 4, but does not print if side=1 or 3.
Try for example:

plot(1:10, (-4:5)^2, main="Parabola Points", xlab="xlab")
for(s in 1:10) {
    mtext(paste("mtext(..,side=1, line=",-s,")"), side=1, line=-s)
    mtext(paste("mtext(..,side=2, line=",-s,")"), side=2, line=-s)
    mtext(paste("mtext(..,side=3, line=",-s,")"), side=3, line=-s)
    mtext(paste("mtext(..,side=4, line=",-s,")"), side=4, line=-s)
