This bug was detected in August and, we apologize, has not yet been fixed.

The work-around is to change one line in ess-inf.el.  Here are my notes
from august:
> A side effect of an unrelated bug fix broke M-x SAS.  It will take a few days

> I think the following temporary repair MAY work for repairing M-x SAS.
> I am not testing it.  It will undo the XLS fix.
