I *think* the following defun might help you; put it in your .emacs
after your code that loads up ESS.
Tony: did you send this to me, I can't recall whether someone else
sent this to me or not? The new code is the "(if (cdr pair)" line.
Should I commit it to CVS?

(defun ess-setq-vars-local (alist &optional buf)
"Set language variables from ALIST, in buffer BUF, if desired."
(if buf (set-buffer buf))
(mapcar (lambda (pair)
(make-local-variable (car pair))
(if (cdr pair)
(set (car pair) (eval (cdr pair)))))
(format "(ess-setq-vars-LOCAL): language=%s, dialect=%s, buf=%s, comint..echoes=%s, comint..sender=%s\n"
ess-language ess-dialect buf comint-process-echoes comint-input-sender)))
