Note that the current version of R is 2.7.1, and 2.6.2 is the
previous-but-one version of R. The 'previous version', 2.7.0, behaves in
the same way as 2.6.2, as does a version as old as 2.4.0.
If there was a version that asked for interaction in a non-interactive
session, it had a bug that was corrected long ago.
If you want to interact with R, you need to run R interactively.

Actually, it seems that they do not.
