I have developed a problem with the postscript output of plot on Windows. My code still works properly with R 2.3 but, with R 2.4, the white text on red background does not show up. It does, however, show up when output is sent to the screen. Below is my code and sessionInfo.

R version 2.4.0 Under development (unstable) (2006-08-29 r39012)
