Thanks a lot, this works perfectly; at least, with only one instance  
of R running. This is rather logical. But nevertheless, since I  
regularly use several instances in parallel, I should once do  
something about this issue. If anyone has ideas, they are warmly  
welcome! Probably something like "last used" / "frontmost" instance.

Just for the protocol, if somebody else is interested as well:

> 		tell process "SubEthaEdit"
		tell process "Xcode"

For the keyboard shortcut, you have to go to XCode Preferences and  
disable Cmd+Return in the "Build" menu in "Key bindings" for "Build  
and Go". Go to the Script menu, choose "Edit user scripts", press the  
"+" and "Add new script file". Add your script and the keyboard  

Cheers again, Gregor.
