What is the result of

I presume "gnuclient" 
I think when gluclient start, it tells you how should "finish"
in GNU emacs and "emacsclient", the message displayed is

   When done with a buffer, type C-x #

(and that message is immediately overwritten with

>> inferior-ess-send-input: Symbol's value as variable is void:
>> comint-last-input-end

  [a buglet present in our development version of ESS !!]

In emacs, you can retrieve these messages by looking into the
*Messages* buffer; in Xemacs, there is a help command (I don't
recall) for displaying the last few dozens of messages.
