[R] copying huge strings via clipboard?

This is on Windows10 via the R gui . I, admittedly inadvisably, tried
to create a new character object by first copying a 1-million character
string (including lead and trail "'" chars) to the clipboard and then,
in the console,
>> foo <-
and hitting "paste"
What I found is that, around 5000 characters, a newline ( "\n") char
showed up. Is this something that the Windows Clipboard does, or
something odd about pasting into a command in R?
>> bar <- readChar('thefile.txt',1e6)
the import works perfectly.
