Definitely a bug, the color vector was just being recycled. I seem to have
inadverdently fixed this a couple of days ago while making some related
changes, and now the z-values that are out of bounds are simply not shown (as
would happen if the corresponding z-values were NA). Does that sound
acceptable ? I don't like your second option because users may knowingly want
to do something like this (sort of what xlim and ylim are for).
I'll send you the modifications off-list for you to try out.
