[Rd] Spurious output white line in R script (PR#8631)

I noticed that R scripts produce a spurious white line after output. For example, the following shell script,

#!/bin/sh
R --slave --vanilla <<EOF

cat("Hello\n")

EOF when made executable under the name ``hello`` along the search path, behaves like this:

$ hello | od -bc
0000000 110 145 154 154 157 012 012

          H e l l o \n \n
0000007

The second newline is not wanted, and I would like if R was not producing it.
