[Rd] Inconsistent behavior of sQuote and dQuote

Dear all

When comparing sQuote("text") and dQuote("text") on MacOS X and Linux FC4 I get an inconsistent behavior (using the new release version R-2.6.0):

sQuote: On Mac I get the correct result "'text'", but on FC4 the incorrect result "`text´".
dQuote: On Mac I get the correct result "\"text\"", but on FC4 the incorrect result ""text"".

For this reason I cannot use these functions in my package.

Best regards
Christian
