I just tried your code and my R doesn't hang but it does give an TeX-error:

(/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dError in getMetricsFromLatex(TeXMetrics, verbose
= verbose) :
TeX was unable to calculate metrics for the following string
or character:


Common reasons for failure include:
  * The string contains a character which is special to LaTeX unless
    escaped properly, such as % or $.
  * The string makes use of LaTeX commands provided by a package and
    the tikzDevice was not told to load the package.
