You have to have a valid 'date' object on the x-axis. Try this:
simulation<-data.frame(cbind(my.year=c(rep(2000,8),rep(2001,12),rep(2002,12)),my.month=c(5:12,1:12,1:12)))
simulation$year.month<-paste(simulation$my.year,"_",ifelse(simulation$my.month>=10,simulation$my.month,paste("0",simulation$my.month,sep="")),sep="")
simulation$freq<-sample(1:40,32)
# create POSIXct time
simulation$time <- ISOdate(simulation$my.year, simulation$my.month,1)
attach(simulation)
plot(time, freq)
