I think R-help is not the "optimal" (put mildly) to report this.

ESS-help would be more appropriate (or even  ESS-bugs or rather
"emacs-snapshot-bugs" if there was such a list).

For now let me state that I'd consider this behavior to be a bug
in "emacs-snapshot" {which is ~= "Emacs-devel", BTW, for those poor R
users who have to suffer through this thread ;-)}

Use a released version of Emacs, ....
