[R-SIG-Mac] editor autocomplete, comments, and quotes

Hi Gang,

I've discovered a curiosity with autocomplete in the editor.
If you insert a comment with an unmatched single quote, for example

	####   I'm so happy that last line of code worked!

then autocomplete will no longer work below this comment,
though it continues to work above it.

Confessing bad karma from using a single quote for an apostrophe...
or perhaps using contractions is a sin...
nevertheless this observation may be useful to other users,
preventing the kind of wild goose chase I went on.

I've honestly thought about this about five million times since I started using R in any format. Every single time I've copied, switched window and pasted. This is just brilliant. Thank you very much for this enhancement.
