two problems upgrading from emacs 20.7 to

Hi, all.  I recently updated from emacs 20.7 to 21.2.1
(powerpc-apple-darwin, X toolkit, from fink).

I'm now encountering two problems using ESS-5.1.19 (neither of which came up
with emacs 20.7).

The first is annoying, but minor.  All my commands are now echoing.  The
original command line is put in boldface, then repeated below before begin

> plot(1:10, 1:10)
plot(1:10, 1:10)

Previously, I'd just have the command (unbolded) left on the command line.
Obviously I can live with this, but it would be nice to eliminate it.

The second problem is a bigger deal.  Previously, I could start a command
running in the R buffer and, if the command was going to take a while,
switch back to another buffer to edit another function.  Now, a watch icon
appears when I start running a command, and I'm not allowed to switch into
another buffer.

I'd greatly appreciate any help resolving either of these issues.  If
there's additional information I should provide, please let me know.
