Are you talking about the console or the editor?

This is a very strange error and it's just a soft exception so it
should cause no crash - hitting <Esc> should get you back on track.
But if it was a crash (with the famous "app unexpectedly quit"
message), then there should be a proper crash report - that would be
more helpful in that case. Can you, please, run the debug version
(from http://www.rosuda.org/R/nightly ) and send me the full report
if this occurs again?

Not directly - it's hard to tell whether this is a bug if it's not
reproducible ;). Did you run any computation in R while typing this?
Was a Quartz window busy plotting something at that point?
