It does work for me, both in the R process buffer (aka "*R*")
and in *.R file buffers -- also when I just do
"emacs -q" \\ M-x load-file ...../ess-site.el \\ M-x R
i.e. it's not special in my setup.
However, this really does belong to the ESS-help mailing list, to
which I redirect. Pascal, you should consider sending a regular
ESS bug report (via the ESS / iESS menu, or M-x ess-submit-bug-report).
