Adding text to a plot makes R freeze if 'srt' is given a very small negative
value, eg:

plot(1, type = "n")
text(1, 1, "some text....", srt = -1e-8)

But if 'srt = -1e-6' (or smaller) or 'srt = -1e-19' (or greater), this works.

This seems to be OS-dependent: I observed this under Linux but not under Solaris
(I was not able to test under Windows or MacOS).
