[R-SIG-Mac] "¬" in Script Editor

I've been noticing lately some weirdness in the editor when copying
and pasting code.

Last night when I was trying to run some code from the ggplot2 mailing
list I pasted the code in from gmail. As usual, there were extra line
breaks that caused the code to fail.

I pasted the code into the script editor to fix the line breaks and
then copy/pasted it into R-GUI. I then got a lot more errors than I
did previously, all of which were caused by the insertion of an
invisible "¬" symbol (a logical not).

Here: https://plus.google.com/116319893425910717496/posts/5Yxkk7GFwts
is a screen shot.

The code in question is from this question:
... but this has happened before a few times (I cannot recall when it
started, recently... perhaps since installing ML, but maybe before
that). If I hit up to input the previous previous command the "¬" are
not there and when I search in the editor for this symbol nothing is found.

Is there something going on with the editor or the clipboard or ...?
Where should I be looking?
