Have you ever considered using C-u C-c C-r instead of C-c C-r?
Best regards

Actually, copying multi-line R code (e.g. C-c C-r) is way slower with
ESS if you use Emacs22 (and its derivatives such as AquaMacs). Things
are perfect with Emacs21 though (and I'm sticking with it). Maybe that
explains the discrepancy.
