[Rd] Locale problems with too-fancy quotes in Windows CMD.exe

'Fancy' quotes are displayed incorrectly when running R from Windows' CMD shell (Start -> Run -> CMD; latin small letter ae and capital letter AE; as a script or interactively)). Is this a system configuration issue, and if so how can I correct it?

C:\R>Rscript -e sQuote('x')
[1] "x"

C:\R>R --version
