You can set the width and height of a page in the postscript driver;
maybe the workaround

dev.copy(postscript, horiz=TRUE, width=11, height=8.5) 

(or whatever the measurements are for A4 paper, if you want that)
would give you something usable.  Both your original and this
workaround seem to be okay for me in 1.1.1; are you using the latest
