This is the documented behaviour for R when used non-interactively.
Presumably your `SSH' (probably really openssh) isn't using terminals for 
input and output.

You might like to try rterm --ess, a kludge for a similar problem in 
NTemacs.  Or try a different ssh (a real Windows one, not one designed for 
systems with ptys).

It never does: no version of R prompts for those to my knowledge.
