you have some incompatibilities in your various initialization files.
check site-start.el and init.el and .emacs (i know you are on Xemacs, but check
for .emacs anyway).
Your two lines
(require 'ess-site) ; load ess
should be redundant, but the second is pointing to an obsolete version of ESS.
Remove the line (require 'ess-site), as it is no longer needed.
Look in site-start.el and init.el and .emacs for for a place where you set
the load-path to include a reference to 5.1.21.
You may remove that line as we now set the load-path for you as part of ess-site.el.
There may be some other incompatibilities as well.
To confirm that ESS is installed correctly, start emacs with
emacs -q --no-site-file
I think the xemacs startup without any initialization
is the same, but I am not totally sure.
Then manually load ESS from the *scratch* buffer with
This will confirm that ESS works correctly.
