1. If I use /usr/local/bin/R as my inferior R process, then it does not  
because it says it needs save, no-save, or vanilla.

2. So I define a script R-ESS that execs R --vanilla, and make that my
inferior R process. That works, but smells like a hack.

3. I also get

ess-error: Timeout waiting for prompt. Check inferior-ess-prompt or  

4. If I have a file with R commands and I "evaluate buffer" in the ESS  
then it says "starts evaluating" and then hangs. This maybe a case of
RTFM on my part.

5. I can evaluate lines and functions in a buffer.
