Ok, sorry about that. You suggested this fix for the directory name
problem I was having:

I just tried this and it works to get the directory name that I wanted
(R-src with R, S-src with S). Here's what I now have in my .emacs for
(lambda () (file-name-as-directory
(concat (if (string= ess-dialect "R")
"/" ess-suffix "-src")))))
However, the main problem is really that ess-dump-filename-template is
ignored in both R and S modes (this is Mary's problem too). That's
why I gave up and decided to wait until all this was fixed.

Yeah, I knew I was being selfish about that one. I just don't know
anyone else who uses Stata. ;-)

Yes, I knew this. Anyway, again, I didn't mean to denigrate your
efforts in any way. I'll certainly be looking forward to trying the
next release whenever it comes.
