To follow up on Rich's email, and on my earlier emails, I think the
temporary fix for the problem of not seeing the end of R output is
to add this to the end of your .emacs:

(setq comint-scroll-to-bottom-on-output t)

[The reason I couldn't repeat this bug is that I had this in my .emacs

This is mentioned in the ess info file, but I thought this would be
unneccessary; and presumably if ESS 5.1.24 worked for others without
setting this extra var, I did introduce a bug somewhere, and will look
into this.
