There is a mistake in ISOLatin7.enc file which is shipped with grDevices
package. Instead of Umacron and umacron there are Ucirmcumflex and ucirmcumflex.

There is no U cirmcumflex in ISO Latin 7 encoding, as can be seen in 

and I also can report this as native Lithuanian speaker, since ISO Latin 7
encoding is used for Lithuanian and Latvian languages.

Steps to reproduce

1. In R issue commands :


When viewing postcript file instead of Ūū you will see Ûû.

Changing [uU]circumflex to [uU]macron in file ISOLatin7.enc fixes the problem.
