This will not be very helpful, but still. I am using Carbon Emacs on  
Mac which is (currently) based on Emacs I have been using  
it for a while, so I cannot comment on suddenly missing  
fontification, but I am certainly getting any character vector (ie.  
between double quotes) fontified when editing a .R file. Ditto for  
comments (which in my setup is coloured the same color as strings).
