[R] Using subplot (from Hmisc) along with par(mfrow)

The subplot function in the TeachingDemos package is more up to date
than the version in Hmisc (the Hmisc version is a copy of an earlier
version of the one in TeachingDemos).  If you replace library(Hmisc)
with library(TeachingDemos) (with a recent version of TeachingDemos
installed) then the code works as you expect.
