I have the following problem with the FontForm option of Plot :
(I'm using Mathematica 3.0 on SunOS 5.5.1)

Because the notebook-version is much too slow, I use the text-based
 version, and try to plot :

> Plot[Sin[x], {x,0,5}, PlotLabel->FontForm["SINUS", {"Courier-Bold",18}]]

that worked in MMA 2.2, and "should work fine in 3.0" (support says)

But the result is to close all "Plot-Window" abruptly,
 and it becomes unpossible to plot another Graphics, for example :

In[4]:= Plot[Sin[x], {x,0,5}] gives :

   LinkObject[motifps -mathlink -linkmode ParentConnect, 1, 1]
     is closed; the connection is dead.

   Argument LinkObject[motifps -mathlink -linkmode ParentConnect, 1, 1] in
    LinkWrite[<<2>>] is not an open LinkObject.


Out[4]= -Graphics-

Is it possible to fix this bug ?

Thank you in advance
