After using R(D)COM and Matlab R-link for a while, I do not recommend it. The COM interface has trouble parsing many commands and it is difficult to debug the code. I recommend using a system command from Matlab as described in the <a href="http://rwiki.sciviews.org/doku.php?id=tips:callingr:matlab">R Wiki</a>. This also avoids having to install RAndFriends.
after construction of a subplot_grid object, the current axes was not always rightly defined. This is fixed, and set to the first subplot after construction.
the use of the method set_gca is now not needed after construction (i.e., if the first subplot is the first to be used).
