The maps, as you probably know, map key sequences to commands.  ESS
uses inferior-ess-mode-map in the interactive buffer that is running
the program---S or R for example---and uses ess-mode-map in the editor
buffer that is visiting a source file.  I had forgotten that I equated
the underscore to "<-" in both maps, so the way to get ESS to
substitute "<-" for "_" both when you are editing and when you are
interacting is to put the following in your .emacs file

   '(lambda ()
      (define-key inferior-ess-mode-map "_" "<-")))
   '(lambda ()
      (define-key ess-mode-map "_" "<-")))
