[R-SIG-Mac] tab key in R

I am a new mac user and a new R user (but I have used S and Splus in unix
environments for a long time).  I have installed R and in general it seems
to be working fine.  Here is a problem that I am hoping someone can help
me with:

In an R session, hitting the TAB key twice produces a list of files in
the current directory. This is apparently some type of tab completion
behavior from my shell (but the behavior does not happen in the parent
shell).  Any idea on how to stop this?  It causes problems when reading in
code from others who use TABs to format.
