[S] Graph Sheet blinking problem

When I record S-Plus sessions for teaching purposes (using for example Microsoft
Camcorder), all the menus, command window, etc. record beautifully. Graphics work
great as long as the graph is created with one "stroke", e.g., xyplot(y ~ x) or plot(x,y).
But if you add data to the graph (e.g., using points(), locator(), text()), you can
see the graph sheet "blink" (even without recording), and this makes the recorder
record a blank graph sheet from that point on. Does anyone know of a workaround?
I've tried using Lotus Screencam, but it has even more problems in recording
graphics windows. Thanks.
