I believe it's the same situation as described in bug 9248. R script editor cannot open file exceeding 1000 characters even if created in the same editor. File is
all ANSI with symbols < 128 and with window line endings CR/LF (0x0D 0x0A). The trick is the local settings : even if the OS is US if the language settings for non-Unicode (Control Panel\Regional and Language options\Advanced\Language for non-Unicode programs) is set to Russian in my case R only reads the first 1000 chars (and appends some garbage). If this setting is switched back to English the problem goes away.
