Well, rw2011.exe does install the default set of components for me, and 
nothing has changed in the last few days.

Note that Inno Setup does pick up default options from a previously 
installed version of R, so that might be the explanation.  (It might even
do so if one had already been uninstalled: the docs are not clear about 

Specifying /COMPONENTS is probably what you want to do to be sure.
