If, for whatever reason, you are a CLI addict and insist on running R  
Terminal.app, then a major nuisance is that ? and ?? write to the same
terminal window. This can be helped by installing AquaLess from
http://aqualess.sourceforge.net/ and setting options(pager="aless")
in R. This allows you to browse R objects by page() as well.

You can also use aless to pipe man output if you export PAGER=aless
in bash.

Aqualess did not work properly in Leopard/Tiger for about 2 years,
but version 1.6 seems to be fine. Of course R.app gives you the
multiple windows and much more.
