try this:

(require 'ess-site)
(setq pop-up-frames t) ;; Emacs customization

;; then load an R file or do M-x ess-mode and select, for example,  
ESS / "About editing"

That should reproduce the bug: the original buffer shown twice in two  
windows in the original frame, and  (as expected) the Info buffer in  
a separate frame.

This is in the latest CVS GNU Emacs, as experienced on Mac OS X. (I'm  
using Aquamacs, actually, but you should be able to reproduce this on  
any recent GNU Emacs 22.)

Let me know if anything is still unclear.
