Good point! I wasn't aware that the standalone QGIS had its own Python.
Unfortunately I have no Windows machine to dig into the problem, but I
can suggest a hack: search for site-packages folder somewhere into C:
\Program Files\Quantum GIS Mimas\ and move the rpy2 folder of Python
2.6.4 into it. 

If not, I think it's easier to use OSGeo4W install for everything except
R and R packages.

Hope this helps!
