query for large object display

I use ESS version 5.1.19 in xemacs 20.4 and am very happy with it.
Occasionally, however, I type an object's name and forget to explore first
if it's a large object.  If it is, it causes xemacs to freeze up,
sometimes indefinitely while it's trying to dump all of the data to the
buffer.  Is there a variable to set which would query yes/no (or simply
refuse to do it) if the object is beyond a certain size?

Thanks in advance,
