Thanks for that comprehensive answer!

I have not investigated the issue with ess getting confused about the
quotes, as this occurs when running R inside screen remotely inside term
with ess-remote as the glue to the R buffers.  And as I perceive it,
this is not the recommended/supported way of doing things.

I have not tested whether this happens when using a connection through
tramp yet, as this is not practical for me.
