[R] A problem with svIDE in Tinn-R?

It is a warning, and a warning about a long-standing error in svIDE.

This is not to do with Tinn-R except perhap that the message gets 
mangled.  I get from command-line R

1: '\A' is an unrecognized escape in a character string
2: unrecognized escape removed from ";for Options\AutoIndent: 0=Off, 
1=follow language scoping and 2=copy from previous line\n"

Of course, a \ needs to be doubled in R character strings.  That has 
always been the case, but the warning is new.

Please take it up with the svIDE maintainer.
