Yes, this one is a bug in CreateAtVector, plot.c.
It already has the lines:
/* Debugging: When does the following happen... ? */
if (umin > umax)
warning("CreateAtVector \"log\"(from axis()): "
"usr[0] = %g > %g = usr[1] !", umin, umax);
And now we know that it happens if (and only if?????) the logarithmic
scale is not very small (i.e. axp[2] > 0, this is equal to R's
par("yaxp")[3] in your example) and the axis are reversed (umin > umax).
I'll try to provide a fix which should be possible by reversing
arguments axp and usr in this case and returning a reversed at ...
