I tried copy/paste from TextEdit, I tried copy/paste from the R editor, I tried <Cmd><Enter> from the R editor and I tried sourcing the file and all of those work just fine. Can you elaborate on exactly how you reproduce the crash and what OS X version you have?

Ah, ok, sorry, I misunderstood what you were doing - I thought you were pasting it to R.

The issue seems to be triggered by syntax highlighting - the GUI it trying to assign the proper colors to all the text you are pasting and something bombs there - I can reproduce it - we'll have a look, thanks.
