I'm following up on my last post, just to have it in the record: I've
boiled down the behavior to these two examples: output the results by
value vs output. R seems not to have anything to do with it. Somehow
the "by value" code is intervening. I'll try to debug.
$ emacs -Q -eval '(setq load-path (cons
"~/share/emacs/site-lisp/org-mode/lisp" load-path))' -eval "(require
In the buffer:
*** by output
#+begin_src sh :results output
*** by value
#+begin_src sh :results value
