if, in  the R Console, you specify arguments in quartz() than the 
behaviour is the following: if you didn't check the "override" box, 
specified arguments are used, otherwise (the box is checked) the 
arguments you pass in quartz() are ignored and preferences parameters 
are used instead.
We needed a criteria to let R understand what to do with two different 
specifications of input arguments.
