[Rd] lowess: parameter 'delta' has no effect (PR#9264)

In the help page of lowess, it says:

    delta: values of 'x' which lie within 'delta' of each other are

          replaced by a single value in the output from 'lowess'. 
          Defaults to 1/100th of the range of 'x'.

It doesn't. No matter what value I give for delta, the result always has the same number of points as there are in the input.
