It works nicely for all the lines (frame of the plot, boxes, notches and medians) exept for the axis line. Thus the two axes appear twice the width of the frame. How can I control only the width of the axis line? Or, other option, how can I get rid of the axis line without getting rid of the tickmarks (as below the axis, there is the line from the frame, I don't really need the axis line)?

boxplot(1:10, lwd=0.5)
