I am sending commands to R via AppleScript (specifically, from SubEthaEdit to instruct it to source the file I'm currently editing). R doesn't respond tothe AppleScript until I move the mouse over R's console window.

The following patch to the Mac GUI (against current svn trunk) resolves the problem, by posting a dummy event to wake up the event queue after the command has been stuffed into the input buffer.
