Dave would it be more accurate to say that R remains very small, limited to
the size of our one object in our Universe. In fact at the extreme case of
one particle Universe doesn't R equal the Planck scale and for all practical
purposes the force due to the cosmological constant is zero.

I do not understand your reasoning.
I am afraid I was trying to visualize a one particle Universe and not very
well at that. (the moral is never think out loud in print). Your other post,
which was a response to an earlier and less speculative post of mine
clarified how we can meaningfully talk about the situation in your thought
experiment just fine.
