ES: minor, but disconcerting, problems

Hi All:

I am running ESS 5.1.19 with emacs 20.2.3 under solaris 2.7 as my interface
to Splus 6.04 revision 1.

While ESS is a wonderful tool, I have encountered several things that are

a. Upon initiating s+6, I do not seem to have access to the namedb file that
contains the list of splus functions for completion purposes.
      Instead, the first time I invoke help (C-c C-v), all attached
directories are scanned to create the list of functions. The result appears
in the process buffer.

      b. I attach my working directory for a project in position 1. Despite
the fact that the function names are available for completion, each time I
invoke help,
          all objects in the project directory are listed in the process
buffer. It as if C-c C-x (objects()) is being invoked.

      c. The first time I invoke C-c C-x. The objects appear in the process
buffer. All subsequent invocations appear in the appropriate *S objects*

      d. using any of the ess functions always adds an extra '>' to the
last line in the process buffer.

These are probably trivial problems to fix but I have not been able to
figure out how to do so.

Would that I were more sophisticated about emacs/lisp/ess. 

Any help appreciated,
