You mean you get the same behaviour using R  without ESS (and
without Emacs)?

If yes, please ask on R-help instead of ESS-help
[but first do read the posting guide, then,
 read help(edit)
 and then,  give the exact details of your R version and in
 particularly  what you did :
 i.e. a reproducible example of how you called edit();
 e.g. there's quite a difference of calling it on a vector or on
 a data frame.
