bitmap() extremely slow!

Hello all, I run into the following problem. Regularly, I need to create affyPLM QC images as created by the affyPLM library and image(). I found out that in R-2.13.0 the creation of these images are very slow when I write them to bitmap(). Actually, I do use the function screenpng as provided by simpleaffy: function (file = "figure.png", width = 4, height = 4, res = 72) { bitmap(file = file, type = "png16m", width = width, height = height, res = res) } <environment: namespace:simpleaffy=""> > Creation of a single image takes more than 5 minutes whereas when I use the png() function (with res=72) the image is created within seconds! Why is bitmap() so slow? Changing type from png16m to png256 does not change a thing.
