Behavior of C-c C-n

I don't know if I understand your point.  In Windows or Linux with the 
newest ESS,  C-c C-n causes the current line to run and it advances the 
cursor location to the next line in the code.  I don't understand what 
you mean "would like my R process window to keep up with the current 
submitted code."

I see the R commands run in the ESS *R* window.

However, I do see the issue, which I *THINK* was always present in ESS, 
that the R session running under ESS does not add the commands to the R 
history that are sent over from the R code buffer. So Control-up-arrow 
does not cause the ESS *R* buffer to step backwards through the commands 
that ESS submitted.
