I can verify that the :post work-around suggested by Chuck and
implemented by Jeremie works as advertised.

FWIW, I would certainly prefer to see the implementation
org-babel-R-write-object-command changed so that the work-around
wouldn't be necessary.

Thank you to both Chuck and Jeremie for looking into this.
