[R] dev.print() in R for windows

Both help(dev.print) and the "R for windows FAQ"
suggest that dev.print() with no arguments
should work also on Windows
[Our students have to use Windows, I don't fortunately ...]
Error in PS(file, old$paper, old$family, old$encoding, old$bg, old$fg, :
unable to start device PostScript
In addition: Warning message:
printing via file = "" is not implemented in this version
One explanation of the problem is that
is NULL and frankly I wouldn't know what to put there (Win NT 4, or Win 2k).
Of course all this not a big problem, since at least in RGui, there's the
print button that probably everyone uses.
OTOH, it would be nice if dev.print() was portable and would work on all
platforms (as advertized).
Confirmations, suggestions, opinions ?
