[ESS] emacs freezing on computationally intensive commands

When I in my R-buffer call a function that takes long time to finish my
Emacs freezes up until that command is finished. I thought that was
natural until I realized that if the first thing that the R function
does is outputting something to my R-buffer say: cat("Starting
function\n") then this causes Emacs to wake up again, being usable while
the R process finishes off in the background.
Is there are a way to achieve the same thing except the silly approach
of putting such a line in the top of all functions?
I use Emacs 21.3.1, ESS 5.2.5, R-2.0.1 on Fedora
Cheers for any help on this..
