FWIW you can avoid that in any emacs - that's what .emacs is for ;).  
I prefer the 'real' emacs compiled as Carbon app which is really  
stable and behaves as it should - the other clones sometimes don't so  
I'd avoid them. I guess I'll make an 'editors for R' page on the OS X  
wiki when I get back and we can put stuff like this there ...
