I've now managed to duplicate this.  It's an RStudio bug, not an R bug.  
They are not using the R.css file that sets the size of the logo (or 
perhaps they're using an older version of it).

I'm not completely up to date on RStudio, so it may be that you can fix 
it by updating.  I've bcc'd support at RStudio to let them know about 
this; not sure if that will get through.
