I am trying to upgrade to ESS 5.2.0 (from 5.1.24)
but when I start XEmacs and 
each time I send a line to the R process I get the error

(error/warning) Error in process filter: (void-variable

I dont have 'comint-last-input-end' in my init.el file
so I assume that it is something new in 5.2.0.
Has anyone else encountered this problem?

It tried to browse
for a solution without success.
(Is there a better way to search the archieves?)

Package: ess-mode 5.2.0
I am on Windows XP, running R 1.9.0 (patched).
Emacs  : XEmacs 21.4 (patch 6) "Common Lisp (Windows)"
