maybe my environment is not set up correctly. C-c C-r doesn't do

highlight: (either in a text buffer or *ESS*)

v = c(1,

C-c C-r
switch to *R*
Error: Object "v" not found


prints in the one line buffer at the bottom: 
Starting evalutions...
and hangs (I have to stop it with C-g)

now if v was defined on one line 
ess-eval-region returns with Finished evaluation. but the v vector is
still not defined in R

I am sure I am doing something silly. just can't figure out what?

thanks for the advice. I'll try that too.
