It looks like you have the 'Strip comments in history entries' set in  
your startup preferences which causes this to happen. Could you check  
that? That setting also causes problems if working with hexadecimal  
numbers. I find the setting useful if I have many comment lines in  
multiline history entries.

Guess [up arrow] in R Console doesn't work for you?
