[Rd] choose.files() latent highlighting in console

Greetings,

When I call choose.files() from within a Windows (Vista or XP) Rgui.exe
(2.10.0) session and double-click my choice, a large section of the text in
the 'R Console' window appears as "selected" (highlighted in blue) when control returns to the console. The end point of the selected text is the mouse position at the time the 'Select files' window closes. Once a key is pressed in the R console, of course, the highlighted region vanishes.
(Curiously, that "highlighted" section is not the actual "selected region"
within the console, as hitting Ctrl-C ends up copying the text from the mouse position to the R prompt!) Is there a way to call choose.files() -- otherwise a work-around (sending a phantom, non-functioning keystroke?) -- so that this potentially confusing "selection" is not highlighted?

Thanks,
Dan
