I searched for nchar(homeDir) in the R source code and on CRAN (as
indexed by GitHub), and the only CRAN match was probably unrelated (in
the ibmdbR package).

There's also a few matches in the RStudio source code:

A search of "nchar(homeDir)" on RStudio website gives a lot of
seemingly relevant results.

However, I don't see them doing anything obviously wrong. This could be
related to stricter handling of invalid strings that was recently
improved in R:

What does path.expand("~/") return on your machine? What is Encoding(.)
of the value? What are its actual byte values, i.e. charToRaw(.)? What
is your sessionInfo()?

Best regards,
