it doesn't matter if the buffer is attached to a R process or not.

wrt to the problem you mentioned, if I open an previously stored
transcript in fundamental mode and try to switch manually to transcript
mode via M-x ess-transcript-mode I get the following error message:
call-interactively: Wrong number of arguments: ....alist major-mode
mode-name ess-transcript-mode-map ess-mode-syntax-table mode-line-process
require ess-inf kill-all-local-variables toggle-read-only ...] 5
("/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/ess-5.1.21/lisp/ess-trns.elc" . 4782) nil], 0
