[Rd] par(las=.) gives wrong "adj" for mtext() (PR#726)

For R Version 1.1.1 and R-devel (Linux)...

Sorry, there's no time to fix myself now
{e.g., after starting a new device} :

    par(las=3); plot(1:10); par(las=1) ; mtext("mtext")

Gives a left-adjusted (as for  adj = 0)  mtext,
even if  par("adj") is still 0.5

Note that I'm also not convinced that  mtext() should follow  par("las")
as it does in the following {2nd bug ?} :

    par(las=3); plot(1:10); mtext("mtext")
