see a detailed description at stackoverflow, in the lower part of my answer ( you'll find reproducible examples.

My guess is that hexBin should produce width and height analogously to StatBin2d yielding all four corner coordinates for each bin, so geom_hex knows what it should draw. Incidentally, this would make geom_hex more general.

Unofrtunately, at the moment I don't have time to produce a patch.

Thanks a lot,
