[R] Bug with ESS? R freezes after cat()

Dears,

I am tumbling over something that appears to me as a bug. If I run the following code using ESS in one block (CTRL+C CTRL+R), R (or ESS) just freezes. Running the same line by line does not cause the error. Running the same from the R Gui either in steps or in a block does not produce the freezes either.

i=2
a=rep('Hallo',times=2)
cat('b')
cat(i)
c=a[i]

Is the freeze reproducable on some other machines? Do use cat() in a non appropriate way?

I am using ESS 5.8, R 2.10.1 on a WinXP machine.

Cheers
Jannis
