Hi, Alex

In my init file I have S-RET as the replacement for C-RET, but I've tested
this both ways and get same behavior.  After removing the init file, when I
do C-RET, then the one line I'm on will run, but the focus jumps over the
rest of the example code lines and stops at the first line of code that is
not commented.  This happens whether an R file is edited in a package in
developer mode or if the file is in a separate directory.

If nobody else sees this, then I guess it has to be something peculiar
about Ubuntu's Emacs 25.2.2 ??
