This is a problem that occurs in R GUI Script Editor and is connected to Windows regional settings.

Since I live in Slovenia, my computer has a keyboard with additional slovenian international characters. I am therefore using Windows XP SP2 with Input Language (=Keyboard Locale, Control Panel/Regional and Language Options/Languages/Details/Input language) set to Slovenian.

On slovenian keyboards characters as [, ], {, } are produced by pressing key combinations AltGr+F, AltGr+G, AltGr+B and AltGr+N, respectively. These combinations generally work in all Windows programs and also in R Console. However, R Script editor produces behaves wrongly and causes: AltGr+F to open Find dialog box,
AltGr+N to open new Script window.

Consequentially, it is not possible to type ] and } brackets using slovenian input settings in script editor. Meanwhile, AltGr+G and AltGr+B work fine.
