This has already been fixed in r-patched an reported several times. 
Please read the NEWS files and the mailing list archives.

I am really surprised that so many people are using the menu (and hence 
copying devices) rather than starting from a clean postscript device 
(which is always preferable). No developer does so I guess and nobody 
else seems to have looked into the alpha/beta versions or release 
candidates of R-2.6.0...
