The tidyverse style guide inconsistent with RStudio style diagnostics

It seems that the 'Tidyverse Style Diagnostic' written by Hadley Wickham is inconsistent with the 'R Style Diagnostics' in RStudio.

R Studio flags white spaces in {{ x }} as unnecessary whitespaces:

while the style guide explicitly suggests to use whitespaces when embracing with {{:

Since Wickham is Chief Scientist at RStudio I would think he would want the two to be consistent. Is there any good place to point this out to the folks at RStudio?

I'm on RStudio, Version 1.4.1512, and am struggling to replicate this.

This may be an edge case, could you give a minimal reprex?

This is definitely a strange edge case I presume. I'm looking at this code piece:

# good and bad

ggplot(data) + 
	scale_fill_viridis_c(begin = 0,
     				 alpha = 0.5,
     				 direction = -1,
     				 na.value = "gray",
     				 trans = "log",
                          breaks = {{ legend_breaks }},
                          labels = {{ legend_labels }} ) 

In my original script (Rmd) it gets flagged as unnecessary whitespace so I copied this part to a new script and it didn't get flagged. However, once I saved the file and when back to the source window it was flagged:

I'm running RStudio 1.4.1103, but when checking for updates it tells me I have the latest version.

Thanks for the report -- I've filed this issue here.
