[ESS] loading error

A few questions:

1. why not the Debian version of ESS?  

2. which version of Emacs or XEmacs (and did you try the other?)

Camm M (the Debian maintainer) recently worked out a few bugs with
respect to ESS and Debian, but this isn't it.  Do you have Debian's 
daily updating package installed, and also, which version of Debian
