[R] error using R Commander for text file import

Thanks for trying to field this question, but the error is unlikely to be
related to the data since splitCmd() is used internally to format commands
generated by the Rcmdr so that they fit in the Script window. Unfortunately,
the contents of the Script window are likely to be uninformative since the
offending line won't have been displayed.
I've never seen this error, nor has anyone else reported it, and as you
might imagine, importing a text file is a very common operation. Although I
can't rule it out at this point, I suspect that if this were a bug in the
Rcmdr, it would have surfaced before.
Some more information about what you did might help. Commands generated by
the Rcmdr shouldn't have unbalanced quotes unless the user enters them,
e.g., in a text field. For example, might you have tried to place quotes
around the name of the data set.
