I have encountered a similar problem at times - the number of lines  
is not fixed, it depends on the text and it doesn't always happen.  
The problem is in the Terminal application, not R (i.e. you get the  
same problem with other applications run in the Terminal). You may  
want to use the R GUI instead which doesn't have such limitation.
