Dear Sir/Madam

First, I should tell that I'm using virtual PC "w2k" in a mac osx 10.2.

The problem: I recently downloaded the windows version 1.8.0. I found 
the following problem with the instruction plot.
E.g., if I type the following instructions, I got the following error 

 > x = 1:10
 > y = 2*x
 > plot(x,y)
Hit <Return> to see next plot:
Error in plot.window(xlim, ylim, log, asp, ...) :
         need finite xlim values
In addition: Warning messages:
1: no finite arguments to max; returning -Inf
2: no finite arguments to max; returning -Inf

The problem disappears when I explicitly type xlim and ylim (e.g.,  
plot(x,y, xlim=c(0,10), ylim=c(0,20)) )
I also found a similar problem in the instructions "demo(image)" and 

This problem does not occur in version 1.7.1
Is it something to do with the fact I'm using a Virtual PC program?

Thank you in advance

P.S. If you are wondering why I'm using R in a virtual PC it is because 
I frequently use WinBUGS (no version for mac as far as I'm aware).
