This one has already been fixed in r-patched and r-devel (to be R-1.8.0).

[That's a question for r-help, not appropriate for a bug report.]

?plot.POSIXct points you to a function axis.POSIXct() to be used as in:

  plot(c(1,2), as.POSIXct(c("1984-01-01","1984-01-02")), yaxt="n")
  axis.POSIXct(2, as.POSIXct(c("1984-01-01","1984-01-02")))
