And less itself works OK in an xterm? The above looks perfectly
normal to me. The whole procedure is external to R: R writes a file,
then fires up the pager on it, so it is difficult to imagine that
something in R itself should cause the problem. You said that "man"
works; does that use less as its pager too? "man whatever | less"
might be illuminating.
