Something odd is going on. I can confirm that read.delim("clipboard") works from R, but not from Tinn-R. What seems odd is that the contents of the clipboard _are_ preserved after the Tinn-R send, so that a subsequent paste or read.delim("clipboard") from R works correctly. Perhaps Tinn-R restores the contents of the clipboard after sending to R such that the R command runs before the restore takes place?
