You are right. When I press <TAB>, the indentation is correct. I was 
looking for a way to have the automatic indendation without pressing 
<TAB> right after pressing <RETURN> as it is the case when the 
prantheses are not yet closed. I.e. if i first type:

foo <- function() {<cursor>}

hiting return would yield:

foo <- function() {

instead of

foo <- function() {

Any ideas?
