[Rd] bad interaction between RandomFields 1.1.11 and Sweave

Not really a bug (I eventually discovered), but ...
When running GaussRF()/DoSimulateRF() with n>1, the default pch="!"
prints backspaces to the terminal, which causes problems (LaTeX barfs) if
you're running this within an Sweave() job. Setting RFparameters(pch="")
fixes the problem.
Could put this in the documentation, but I don't know where you could
put it that it would attract attention -- wouldn't have occurred to me to
look at RFparameters before poking through the code to see where the ^H
was coming from.
I was going to suggest testing interactive() to see if the code was
running in batch mode or not, but I just tried that with Sweave() and it
thinks that interactive() is TRUE when running Sweave. Oh well.
Any one else have a solution?
