The bug is due to a change in emacs between the pretest 21.0.105 and the
released version 21.1.1.  We know the location of the change but haven
t figured out the best way to respond to it.

The workaround is this:
Use    C-c C-v commandname
this works as always.  Using  ?commandname from the R prompt is temporarily

A second workaround is to go back to 21.0.105 or 20.x until we repair this.
