Ok, I see. This is linux but I recall (from many years ago when I worked on Windows) being able to fix such issues by explicitly specifying the codding system of the process.
I still have this line commented out in my init file: (set-buffer-process-coding-system 'windows-1252 'windows-1252) Try 'utf-8 or variants displayed by M-x list-coding-systems. If this works, you can either set in ess-R-post-run-hook or in process-coding-system-alist. I cannot investigate this further on Windows at the moment, sorry.
