Please note that, some time ago, some commands were changed in such a
way that there is some "default input" which is available via M-n.

In Emacs 20.6, the default input is not available for the `R' command
in dired, but it _is_ available for the C-x C-w command.

In Emacs 21.1, the `R' command also supports this default.

Does this clear up the issue?
