Hi Sebastian,

that looks more like a problem with your shell. which one are you using? perhaps
it it solved by using another one e.g. bash.  otherwise you can find at the end
of the *.pdf "R-intro" http://cran.r-project.org/doc/manuals/R-intro.pdf  a
chapter called: the command line editor perhaps that helps.

cheers Martin
